I'm starting to branch out a bit more with MRTG.  Graphing things like 
errors per second and so on.  From what I've gathered the "[]" is 
nothing more than a label.  I made a mistake once where I had mistyped 
my value between the [].  After a trial run It complained certain items 
were not specified or defined.

FYI... the following link talks about the Target [asdf] parameter


Under "target" it says this

> Each monitoring target must be identified by a unique name. This
> name must be appended to each parameter belonging to the same
> target. The name will also be used for naming the
> generated webpages, logfiles and images for this target.
> Target

Not as clear as I'd like but it works ;-)
