   I do not know about the disk usage, but this is what I use on FreeBSD.  It is a config that calls an external perl script that takes the info from "uptime" and formats it for mrtg.  I am sure you can adapt it to Max OSX.

Subject: [mrtg] mrtg on OS X working / cpu usage?


I finally managed to get mrtg working on my MAC OS 10.5 Server for my two
interfaces (en0,en1), now I am wondering if it is possible to monitor the
cpu usage / disk usage with mrtg?

I was googling for this, but did not find a guide for os x. Anyone knows
if this could be done and if how? :-)

Thanks in advance so much,
