The MIB file is a definition of the OID's. Use GETIF to browse the MIB
file. You'll get the MIB file from cisco, they should be on the
Documentation CD. It will graph everything based on the target name. You
can have multiple targets in a single config `perl cfgmaker
public at >> mrtg.cfg` to add new items.
