I wonder whether it's possible to get the info from MRTG on what it
failed to find...

That was my first attempt - the dot was added later when it didn't
work without it.

Anyway - my bigger concern now is having to duplicate so much
configuration for each host and each interface. I wish there was some
Nagios2-style "template" and "class" configuration that could allow me
to say "this host runs Windows SNMP - yank THESE values from it and
graph them THAT way". (or maybe there is already something to do
