Your syntax is wrong on the target line. Also, your external script
needs adjustment.

First, the script needs to output a minimum of 2 numbers.

Second, you only need to call the script once on the target line, with
no secret or address.


See http://oss.oetiker.ch/mrtg/doc/mrtg-reference.en.html and search
for "External Monitoring Scripts".

And just a side note. I install my MRTG just as you did in /usr/local
however I create a symbolic link to it at /usr/local/mrtg and run
everything using that path. That way when there is a new version of
MRTG all I need to do is install it to its own directory and then
change the link.
