mrtg is traditionally a network monitoring tool, so most of it's features
are geared towards network interfaces.

snmpd on my systems by default reveal more then 4,600 different OIDs I can

[root at portal:~]# snmpwalk -O n localhost public .1 | wc -l

if your wanting to stuff other then network monitoring you usually have
to construct the mrtg.cfg entries yourself, lots of examples are available
on my howto site:
