  1. Hello All,

    I have a PIX535 and MRTG polling it. The config was generated by
    simply running cfgmaker [email protected] Since the volume of traffic is
    high, the counters roll over and MRTG generated graphs lose their
    accuracy. I have reduced the MRTG poll interval to (currently) 30
    seconds, but I know this is just postponing the inevitable.

    I'd like to know how to ask MRTG to poll the 64-bit counters for
    bytes/sec numbers. Does the PIX even support these? The PIX is Cisco
    PIX Firewall Version 6.3(3), and MRTG is the preinstalled one that
    came with Redhat Enterprise Linux 3 (mrtg-2.9.29-4.ent).

    Check MRTG documentation - I think there is an option for counters that roll

    Make MRTG use SNMPv2. This should cause it to poll for the 64-bit counters.

    Adding "--snmp-options=:::::2" to your cfgmaker statement should do the


    Specify default SNMP options to be appended to all
    routers following. Individual fields can be empty.
    Routers following might override some or all of the
    options given to --snmp-options.
