Ah, that makes sense now. Your crontab is running 110 copies of mrtg at
the same time. You want to put all your targets in one CFG file, that
way your computer only needs to run one version of MRTG every five
minutes.   You should be able to get 200-500 targets in one CFG file
before considering running mrtg in parallel.
