ok. it does a snmpwalk to find the devices, then uses that info to
generate the CFG's. I'll have a look at generalizing it more so
users don't have to edit awk scripts....

I havn't figured it out yet because I'm regenerating the CFG's at
each boot but I'm not here to watch the boot and see what happens.
hmmm. maybe I'll force the absmax setting very high and watch the
graphs for a bit to see when the size value changes. it must be some
time after boot.
