The easiest solution would be to use the --ifref=descr option when making
the config with cfgmaker.  Doing this MRTG will use the interface name
(example f0/1) instead of the interface number.

An example would be....

cfgmaker --ifref=descr public at myrouter

This is assuming that you're using a newer version of MRTG, I think at least

Another hint, when making configs for Catalyst switches (COS, not IOS
based), use --ifref=name.

Subject: [mrtg] Big Trouble

Hi everyone,
I am a new user of mrtg.
I am from Brasil and now I am working on a university
My main task is to create a managment/monitoring system based on free tools
I have got mrtg because of compatibility with market standards (talking 
about devices)
But, for now I have I big Trouble:
I am using a Cahssis solution from CISCO SYSTEMS (7513 router series)
This chassis have about 7 slots with serial, atm and ethernet interfaces
OK its easy to put the software to monitor in / out traffic
Therefore when a person change the interfaces of slot, I have problems and 
have to rewrite all the script (because of the number of the field target)
Does anyone can see a solution for that ?
I was thinking about dont use cfgmaker and put the oid for each interfaces
What do you think about it
Thank you a lot
