If you are using the routers2 frontend for MRTG/RRD, then the
recommended way to do it is to have a separate .cfg file per device,
although it will work if you don't (although not as prettily).

In any case, having a separate file per device makes things tidier and
easier to manage.  If you need to have a single file to run MRTG, then
use a master.cfg that includes the others via a Include: statement.
