Cron trouble almost always means: no path to a binary.
That could cause the update not to occur or to fail. 

Do you have a PATH= statement in your crontab above the update statement?
Do a 
	export PATH=the_path_from_your_crontab
on the command line and try to run it from the command line.

Alternatively set:
In your crontab above the update statement.
Cron will mail errors and warnings to you.

Importance: Low


I use mrtg with rrd and have a big problem with external perl scripts.

When I run the scripts manually all things work fine, but in a cron they didn´t

(I use mrtg 2.10.5 and rrd 1.0.40)
