in my enviornments this is what I do. 1 config file per device. I sort
them according to hostname. so for example my switch summit.aphroland.org
is accessed via mrtg.aphroland.org/summit.aphroland.org (index.html
is generated from indexmaker)

same for each of my servers, you can see my main index at mrtg.aphroland.org
that of course is manually generated.

Accessing the urls by host name is a real easy way to organize things
I think though it does take a bit of effort up front, I went through several
other schemes over the years and hostname has worked best for me.
