Four lines. Their meaning is described in the sample mrtg.cfg shipped
with MRTG.

Here is an example:



UPTIME=` awk -F: '/Uptime:/ {print $2}' $FILE`
NAME=` awk -F: '/Name:/ {print $2}' $FILE`
DESCR=` awk '/Descr:/ {print $2}' $FILE`

echo $DESCR
echo 0
echo $UPTIME
echo $NAME

I'm afraid you cannot restrict cache manager access (apart from some
operations like "shutdown" which requires a supplementary password).
Either you authorize a machine or person to see everything through the
cache manager or you ban it completely.

But I do not understand the problem with MRTG: you just have to authorize
one more machine or person, the one which runs MRTG.
