    HOWTOs: Using MRTG to graph Exim stats
    Contributed by igloo on Saturday, January 12 @ 09:32:12 GMT

    I've been using MRTG to graph stats from Exim for a little more than a
    year now. People have asked how to set this up, and now
    I've written a little HOWTO and posted it on my site, but I must first say that I didn't write the scripts myself. If my memory is correct, they were part of MRTG on potato, in an examples section; however I can't find them now. I feel bad that I can't thank and give credit to the person who created them. How I set it up can be found here in my HOWTO.

    I've written a script for use with snmpd that is (almost) a full implementation of the MTA MIB for Exim.

    It's currently running on one of the mailservers

    at work, with Cricket generating graphs.

    I'll be posting a reference to the Exim mailing list at some point soon.

    I have a similar set of scripts for mrtg to graph stats from the courier mail suite (mta, imapd, pop3d). It tracks bytes transferred, mail queue, and number of sessions. If anyone is interested, email me at: johnl (at) blurbco (dot com)

    I am new to MRTG, but I thought it was very cool, so I just apt-get installed mrtg. And then i did not understand much, I cant make the makecfg-script to work, and I find the documentation hard.

    I have a simple Internet router (woody). Eth0 for local network and eth1 for Internet. Now - how do I set up mrtg to make a graph of Internet traffic on the Intranet?
