So would I. :) Problem is that it does not work for me:

ld.so.1: /local/bin/perl5.004: fatal: relocation error: file \
/lib/auto/RRDs/RRDs.so: symbol newRV_noinc: referenced symbol not found

Long lines split. I have tried to find a way around this error, but no
luck. It does not seem to be dependant on the Perl version. The box is
a Solaris 5.6/Ultra2 with gcc

Updates? The example config file has 86 targets. That should be 344

I think this might be a problem. The box only has 384MB memory, and it
currently uses 283MB swap space. Maybe I should just get a bigger iron
for this job.

Thank you for your help! I will see to it that we add a post for CD's
in the 2000 budget. :)

Cheers, Bjørn
