I sent this out 2 days ago and no one responded. If I am being too vague in
my email then please let me know and I will provide as much info as I can.

Hi everyone,

I am using cricket and mrtg (running on separate boxes but on the same
segment) to poll various routers. Cricket is using rrdtool but mrtg is not.
My question is that recently one of the routers I poll is showing drops in
bandwidth on mrtg but not on cricket. When I log onto the router itself and
check, it shows no drops in traffic either. There is something wrong with
MRTG but I can't for the life of figure out what it could be. I have checked
log files and error messages but they are not coming up with anything.

I also checked the routers_name.log file in the httpd/mrtg dir and it
clearly shows a drop in avg incoming traffic for a couple of 5 minute
intervals (so I assume that mrtg is working correctly) but I am stumped.
Have I overlooked anything?? Can anyone provide me with any insight?

-Thanks and Regards
