[mrtg] Long Polling Times?

     I'm currently monitoring 37 ports with my mrtg.cfg file, and am
planning to add about another 20.  
     I'm using MRTG 2.8.12 on an NT PC with 128MB of RAM and a PIII-500
     It seems to take 6 to 7 minutes for the mrtg.cfg file to process.  Or,
rather, a gif file will say "last updated at 10:30" one time, then "last
updated at 10:37" the next time.
     Should this be a concern?  Is this normal?  
     Does the difference in display time correspond to the amount of time it
takes the mrtg.cfg file to process?
     I've saw the email thread a week or two ago discussing "How much is too
much?" when it comes to monitoring.
     I don't think there was really any consensus.
     I guess my main question would be, can MRTG keep viable statistics as
the processing time increases; or does the process time relate at all to the
"last updated..." display?
Thanks for your help,
