One very useful feature is the Include: statement.
For example, why not have:
Now, you can call 'mrtg master.cfg' to update your .rrd files, you can use
'cfgfiles = *.cfg' in your routers2.conf to specify your devices for your
frontend, and you can edit globals.h to set your global settings. It also
allows you to easily modify individual devices configurations without
touching all the other config files.
Keeping one file per device is much better for organisation, provided you
use Include:s in this way to make MRTG remain efficient and separate out the
globals for ease of management.
