[mrtg] MRTG with Windows 2003 Server.

Olla Jordi,

You can try using perl.exe as opposed to wperl. I have about eight w2003 servers running MRTG scripts, and unless the number of targets is in the hundreds, you merely get a bump every time they query. The only distinction I saw is the one above.

No, thats not normal. MRTG process doesn't take dat much processor. 
Open task manager & see what application/service is occupying processor resources.

It would be better if you run mrtg as a windows service. look at "HOW TO SETUP MRTG AS A WINDOWS SERVICE" @ 
http://oss.oetiker.ch/mrtg/doc/mrtg-nt-guide.en.html , It may solve your problem.

On lynx its load remains very low ever with Hundreds of targets.But if you are using MICRO$OFT, any disaster or unexpected problems can be expected ;~) , I was once using the mrtg for windows but remained under stress due to its limited capability and windows un reliablility. Try MRTG on lynx & u will be amazed by its reliability, stability & gr8 powerful scripting capability to monitor about everything.

> Hello Everyone,
> I'm using ActivePerl 5.8.8 and MRTG 2.13.2 in W2k3 Server.(Intel(R) Celeron(R) CPU 2.60GHz). RAM= 1 GB
> Now, we are monitoring different platforms (2 proxys, 5 firewalls), but in the future, we will need configured some 8 more platforms. At the moment we have 7 different configurations for these visualization, where I start up them with the Scheduled Tasks of the Windows using wperl for each configuration.
> My problem is that my cpu (in w2k3 server) always is 100% CPU.
> Is this behaviour normal?
> Can you solve somehow?
