RTG FreeBSD Startup Script

Ok Karl, here you go… Once you have installed RTG on your server from FreeBSD ports and configured it, you can add this script to your /usr/local/etc/rc.d/ folder.  Make sure it runs AFTER your mysql server starts or it will be useless!


case “$1” in
rm /tmp/rtgpoll.pid
/usr/local/bin/rtgpoll -c /usr/local/etc/rtg/rtg.conf -t /usr/local/etc/rtg/targets.cfg &
echo “Please specify ‘start’ or ‘stop'”
