Hi Steve,

Your proposition about MRTG books it's welcome. When I come 
back from vacation I take a look on this. Thanks!

About the proposition to use Routers2 instead to mrtg-rrd I think 
I must to imitate the old installation. It's easier for me to start with 

The old installation works very well and it's very complex. My 
main task is only to replace the old machine and the old software 
installation. Also to get a new hardware and new software. Nothing 
more. Maybe in the future I should improve it.

I start now with to implement config files from the old installation
 and to implement the old scripts. I want to be able to start MRTG 
to monitorized my network before I go on vacation.

Well done; now all you need to do is
document it all up to give instructions to the next person J


I’d suggest you look at Routers2 to
replace mrtg-rrd (see www.steveshipway.org/software
for download and demo) but of course I’m a bit biased there.  There’s
also a useful book at http://www.steveshipway.org/book
with much info if you can get your employer to spring the $ (but again, I’m
biased in my recommendation…)


For host monitoring, the Routers2 package
also comes with mrtg-nsclient and mrtg-nrpe which allow MRTG to graph metrics
retrieved from any Nagios plugin (such as the nc_net agent, which lets you get
any Windows perfmon counter for graphing.  Again, examples are on the website


Finally the forum at www.steveshipway.org/forum has
lots of help for making the most of MRTG.
