### Interface 1 >> Descr: '' | Name: '' | Ip: '' | Eth: '' ###
### The following interface is commented out because:
### * --ifref=descr is not unique for this interface

There is not a line in the snmpwalk for ifref.  There is an ifAlias
which is where the descriptions are placed for the ports though.  Even
if I unremark those, will that be a possible reason on why it still wont
poll the data?

Why?  The config file should say in the comment line above the 
interface.   "The following interface is commented out because [reason].

Often this is because you're specifying an ifref variable that is not 
unique for the interface.  Look at the cfgmaker docs once you find the 
reason in the comment description.
