In which case I have no idea. I don't know if its right, since I don't use Linux so I don't know what the cron syntax is.

It was created itself under the install.
Is it something wrong with it?

he can give you access as a technical contact. If he puts your nichandle as technical contact for the server through his manager, you will see it in your server's list.

Just for you to know as a possibility.

Hi.

I know I can do this, but I don't have access to this panel, since it's my friend who's paying it, and he won't let me access it.

I know this is not the exact answer you were looking for, but you can already access this info in your manager at:

OVH Manager >> your server >> Server State >> Section: Graphs of traffic - MRTG >> Traffic

Hope it's useful for you

Hi dear users.

I'm running:
Linux "ksxxx.kimsufi.com" 2.6.27.10-grsec-xxxx-grs-ipv4-32 #5 SMP Wed Apr 1 13:09:49 UTC 2009 i686 GNU/Linux

I wanted to monitor my network bandwidth use on my ovh kimsurfi server, so I decided to install snmp, snmpd and mrtg using this and thisguide.

I got everything up and running and when I use "snmpwalk -v 1 -c public localhost" it answers perfectly.

But the graph won't update :/

Everything is installed with "apt-get install snmp snmpd mrtg" using original sources list.
