(I should have put this in the original message) but the reason
I don't want to run mulitple cfg files is because I use a java
appelate called alitree which makes calls to 14all.cgi to 
organize/display my mrtg pages.
It's considerably more complicated to add new devices, and organize
them in the tree if I have multiple config files, although now 
that the concept is being suggested, I'm thinking that may be the 
only way to go. It would also help with the speed & memory issues
I have with 14all.cgi and big cfg files.

Take a look at http://mrtg.gvolk.com for a (small) example of
mrtg+14all+alitree. It's really nice actually. I don't have 
the query time cycle problem with the above site because
it's so small. My big mrtg installation is at work, and is not 
publicly accessible.

Thanks for the replies.
