This is a great plugin. It makes monitoring our interfaces very easy.

The only issue we are having is that sometimes it responds with:

"Cannot identify the eth# network interface"

When I snmpwalk the MIBS from the check_interface.pl, I see the interface in question. Any ideas?
Overall it has good reporting of iferrors, but we are unable to graph the errors accordingly, using the -f function- only reports back 0's, not the actual error counts.
