Not entirely sure but it seems to me these are instances that
are only present when a user is dialed in.  I don't think you
want to monitor those at all.  If this is indeed a dial-in box,
you want to know the total number of users and the total amount
of traffic.

Should you worry about the way you monitor it right now?  This
depends on whether or not you're using the unknaszero option.
If you don't, each unreachable interface will continue to show
the last-known good rate.  But again, I don't think you want to
monitor the virtual interfaces at all.
