I have released mrtg 2.0.9pre20 one substantial new feature
is in there. It may help you to speed up mrtg snmp querying
Let me know how much faster you get ...

From: Matthew Schumacher <schu at schu.net>
- upate to cpu info
- fixed start time for newly created rrds ... this must be $time-2 not $now
- fixed quick check rules for maxbytes1 and maxbytes2
- missing directory[xxx] entries will get auto-created
- modified quickcheck rules ... instead of strings we use anonymous subs
now ... this has the advantage of perl actually compiling the stuff and
thus finding errors in the checks even when they are not exercised ...
- ***EXPERIMENTAL*** added forking function. If you run mrtg
on a system that can fork (UNIX for example) you can try the
new 'Forks:' option in the config file. The result of this is
that mrtg will fork into several instances prior to
going out to ask the routers for snmp data. For situations with
high latency as well as mrtg.cfgs with many different devices
this will speed things up considerably. It will not make things faster
if you query a single switch sitting around next door.
As far as I know NT can not fork so I have disabled this for NT.
If you measure some performance data with this approach please let me
know how much faster you went ...
