[Beginner currently using mrtg-2.7.5 on Debian Linux box. I hope my 
question will be clear (HA!) and I'd be v.grateful for any assistance.]

 Hi, I'm unsure of the correct syntax to use on the OID of an 
ifIn[Out]Discards target.

 Below is a small section of a cfg file which was created using cfgmaker. I 
manually edited the file to include the ifInDiscards OID line. Why does 
mrtg stop running when I do that?

 The commented-out line was the original line when created with cfgmaker. 
MRTG stops whether I include the line or not.

# Next line is ifInDiscards OID target
