    I'm fairly new to using plesk. If anyone has setup snmp and mrtg for monitoring server performance, I would appreciate some tips/pointers on how you did it.

    Little MRTG HowTo

    Here's my recent installation recipe:

    - PRIVATE = My SNMP zone, for security, I choosed one hard to guess
    - MYDOMAIN = mydomain.com
    # = run as root

    1 - /etc/snmpd.conf changed to my prefs (PRIVATE zone, system location, admin email...).
    2 - #/etc/init.d/snmpd start
    3 - #yum install mrtg
    4 - #cp /etc/mrtg/mrtg.cfg /etc/mrtg/mrtg.cfg.OLD
    5 - #cfgmaker --output=/etc/mrtg/mrtg.cfg --global 'Workdir: /var/www/mrtg/data' --global 'Options[_]: growright,bits,unknaszero' --global'Weekformat[^]: V' PRIVATE@MYDOMAIN
    6 - #mv /var/www/mrtg/index.html /var/www/mrtg/index.html.OLD
    7 - #indexmaker --output=/var/www/mrtg/index.html --columns=1 --autoprefix /etc/mrtg/mrtg.cfg
    8 - #/usr/bin/mrtg /etc/mrtg/mrtg.cfg --logging /var/log/mrtg.log <<< (people say to run this, ony the first time, for 5 or 6 times, but I don't know the reason)
    9 - I removed /etc/cron.d/mrtg as it was also defined in /var/spool/cron/root
    10 - Then I had my network summary at http://MYDOMAIN/mrtg !

    I hope this helps ;)
