SNMP + MRTG + hrStorage = nothing

Hi all,

I have a PE2600 with Perc4/di that I'm trying to monitor via SNMP/MRTG.  I'm
trying to use the hrStorage system to pull info about my partitions so I can
keep an eye on disk space.  But, the machine isn't spitting anyting but 0's
out to MRTG.

I have the same setup running on another machine (home-brewed) and it's
working fine.

I've copied a portion of the MRTG and SNMP configurations to the bottom of
this e-mail - please advise if something is screwed up there.  Neither
target shown below is working. :(  Oh, and if it makes a difference, the
machine running MRTG is running Debian Sarge and MRTG 2.10.13.  The PE2600
is running RHEL ES 3.1 and the net-snmp package that comes with it (5.0.9,

Is there any problem with trying to track this information this way?  Anyone
else having this problem?
