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.
