help with mrtg

When I try to run mrtg on my FC1 machine I get the following

ERROR: Mrtg will most likely not work propperly when the environment
variable LANG is set to UTF-8. Please run mrtg in an environment
where this is not the case:

env LANG=C /usr/bin/mrtg ...

I'm trying to setup something to monitor bandwidth on my server. And preferably tell me how much is being used by which ports, so I can determine how much bandwidth is being used by web, mail, and game traffic. If there is a better program for doing this that will be fairly easy to use, please let me know.

Well, you can always do what I do. edit /etc/sysconfig/i18n and change LANG to "en_US"

otherwise, what you need to do is in your scripts before hand is export the LANG to en_US
