Problems with the config that I found are.

Every line is commented out with the hash.
The 'noi' will not display the first OID polled, change it to 'noo'.
MAXBYTES is only set to 100, this value should be set to the highest
possible value to graph.

The OID you are using is a counter type, are you sure you want GAUGE in the
options, I monitor errors and don't use GAUGE, but multiply the OID by the
polling interval in seconds to return the amount of errors within my polling

Target[errors]: OID1&OID2:commstr at  *  300
