This is more a Nagios problem, really.

In your nagios checkcommands.cfg, where you define the check_local_mrtgtraf command, make sure that you put quotes around $ARG1$ and then this will work.  In general, you should ALWAYS quote the $ARGn$ parameters in Nagios definitions else you could cause all sort of problems.

I have a problem with ".log" files which have brackets in the filename, as

define service{
        use                     generic-service ; Inherit values from a
        host_name              Name of the host
        service_description     Port 05 Slot 1 Bandwidth Usage
