Configuring MRTG

I could sucessfully configure MRTG to monitor my server eth0 interface.
I wanna know if is there anyway that this same server can monitor workstation's bandwidth in the same LAN. Can I "tell" the server what ip's I want to monitor?

please provide if you are using SNMP or not,
if you are using snmp on your workstation, simply do the following:
cfgmaker --global 'workdir /path/to/your/working/directory' --output /path/to/your/.cfg/file public@workstation --options 'growright, bits'
the above command will create the needed cfg file, then simply run the mrtg command:
env LANG=C /usr/bin/mrtg /path/to/your/.cfg/file

repeat the above command three time.

then add it to your crontab database.

if you are using none snmp protocol, you can simply check the details of MRTG howto on their web site.


interfaces, lan, monitoring, mrtg
