The only Option[] you are applying is nopercent.  a [_] tag overrides
all previous ones.  That lets you insert different [_] tags in the
middle of the config file, and only those targets below are affected.

Try --global 'Options[_]: growright,integer,unkaszero,nopercent' instead.
And unless you have really bizarre gear that only supports SNMP v1, you
should use SNMP v2 or v3 (not just for the 64-bit counters, but also for
the bulk-get feature which makes the polling less network intense)
