[mrtg] Best Practices

I'm setting up a new installation of MRTG and I'm trying to put together a
"best practices" worksheet for it.

The site is relatively small and contains about 50 servers (*NIX and NT/2K),
~15 routers and a about 100 switches, Web farm, firewalls etc...

What I'm looking for are comments on how YOU would organize the
data/log/config files etc.  What key values should be monitored.  How many
values/devices can be monitored before additional MRTG servers should be
setup to ensure graphing doesn't affect performance.  Any other
administration guidelines would be appreciated

Obviously I know this will vary from site to site / admin to admin, but
that's the whole point of asking the list.

If you were to do this, what would you do.  I'll post the worksheet as soon
as it's compiled.
