This looks ok ! I tried to set the things up But I have the following questions.

1. On the mrtg.cfg you have lines such as

        Target[descr]: `/usr/local/lib/MRTG/get_cache_descr`

On MRTG I think you need a executable with the above name (ie
get_cache_descr) for its opration ! Are these missing at the

2. How are executing your retrieve.script and echoping. Are you doing this

Thanks in advance for helping out !
