Ok good, that's sort of what I was hoping.

I mean the timestamps on the cfg files should not be updating 
with each poll.  Only the resulting data files should be.  You 
are correct that you should be able to have a couple logically 
separated (or illogical) to roll up into a big master config file.

Is it possible there is some problem with the first config file 
preventing it from going any further?  I think the files 
are processed serially, so if there are problems, MRTG 
will not proceed beyond the first file.  Shuffle the order 
of the inlcuded files around (put the top one at the bottom 
for instance) and see if it gets further.

Definitely not a pest.  We'll get it working.
