No NT, sorry.  Just a quicky:

Your targets will now look like
   Target[switch-x.1]: 1:public at switch-x
   Target[switch-x.12]: 12:public at switch-x

This is short hand for:
(long lines wrapped, write each target as one line)
                           at switch-x
                        at switch-x

Now read the manuals and look up what to substitute for (which is the ifInOctets counter) and (which is the ifOutOctets counter).

Then create another target, suggested name: Target[switch-x.errors.1]:
and fill in the modified OID line.  More information is in the MRTG
docs, the MRTG FAQ page and (hopefully) your devices manual.
