[mrtg] Disk monitoring problem

Whatconfiguration do you have in your MRTG Target[] lines?  It is hard to spot the error without this information.
Remember that the index should start at 0, not at 1.  This may be where you're going wrong?


--- original message
I have interesting problem with disk monitoring on Solaris 10. In /etc/sma/snmp/snmpd.conf I have configured 5 disks but MRTG sees only 4 of them. I receive two error messages:
After adding the first disk twice, all is OK:
disk / 5%
disk / 5%
disk /var 5%
disk /crashfs 5%
disk /export/home 5%
disk /disk5name 5%

It seems that MRTG does not recognize the first disk in snmpd.conf. Does anybody experienced the same problem? I think the first error message applies to system uptime, but it also disappears after adding the first disk twice.
