I've setup xymon(hobbit) and Im using MRTG to create graphs for our router. the purpose is to alert when the bandwidth reaches a threshold. everything is working fine. but Im not getting any alerts nor is hobbit changing color to reflect warnings or alerts on bandwidth.. I've setup which appears to run fine,

here is part of my mrtg.cfg
WorkDir: /home/xymon/data/rrd/
LogFormat: rrdtool
RunAsDaemon: Yes

Target[mrtg.wan.inside]: 2: public@x.x.x.x:
# bb* = Big Brother info
bb*host[mrtg.wan.inside]: x.x.x.x
bb*svc[mrtg.wan.inside]: int01-08
bb*unit[mrtg.wan.inside]: bytes/sec
bb*red[mrtg.wan.inside]: 183000
#bb*yellow[mrtg.wan.inside]: 104857
bb*yellow[mrtg.wan.inside]: 40000
SetEnv[mrtg.wan.inside]: MRTG_INT_IP="x.x.x.x" MRTG_INT_DESCR="Adaptive-Security-Appliance-'inside'-interface"
Directory[mrtg.wan.inside]: wan
#MaxBytes[mrtg.wan.inside]: 104857
MaxBytes[mrtg.wan.inside]: 193000
Title[mrtg.wan.inside]: Traffic Analysis for 2 -- cisco5510
PageTop[mrtg.wan.inside]: <h1>Traffic Analysis for 2 -- </h1>

the line for the router in the bb-hosts file is

x.x.x.x wan #
