I would suggest creating a separate config file for each device.  We do 
this and monitor over 100 routers and over 200 access servers.  Just create 
a config file with one router's interfaces (router1.cfg) and run each one 
independently.  Your crontab will be quite large, but that is a minor 
concession.  Whenever you only do one router at a time, there is also 
virtually no chance it will take more than a few seconds to run...
