Tony and Alex have given excellent advice.

I would add my $.02 and say you may wish to break up the config file for 
display purposes.

Each config file could have a seperate WorkDir global. These seperate 
directories could then be displayed with seperate web index pages. For 
example, you could organize all your routers in one cfg each with it's own 
Directory statement. You would then group your targets by config file, and 
within config file, you can further sub-group them by Directory. If you 
follow Alex's advice and use rrdtool, you would probably use 14all as your 
cgi engine. It will show all the targets in one config file that have 
different directorys as seperate lines. You then can choose which group of 
targets to display.

If truth was not absolute, how could there be justice?
