[mrtg] Won't work after reboot

Unfortunately, the problem here is down to the router reenumerating interfaces,


You could just set a periodic job to delete the mrtg.ok file –if you don’t have many devices or interfaces it will not take long to recreate, though you’d not want to do this too often, particularly if it is large.

Hi Steve,


Followed you advise and it works! But there is an additional step that I took which is restarting snmpd.

1) rm -f mrtg.ok

2) /etc/init.d/snmpd restart

3) mrtg /path/to/mrtg.conf


without any error. are there any workaround on this if the router reboot by itself? I am sorry as I am kinda newbie with unix.
