MRTG will query each target, so each time it will send out
at least 70 packets (probably more).  It cannot be true that
there should only be a couple of packets each 5 minutes.

As for querying your targets:
As seen in one of your previous posts, this fails.  The device
cannot give the information MRTG asks for.

You really need to start debugging.  Start with the information
from my previous post.
