You might find it more efficient (on a UNIX server) to create a master.cfg file that uses Include: to include each of the other files, and Forks: to set a value depending on your servers power (try 20 for a start and see if it completes in time) and then run MRTG in daemon mode. EG:
(the last line is for if you use the routers2 frontend). Its a shame you can't (currently) use a wildcard in the Include: directive.
Once you have set this up, increase the Forks value if the polling cycle take >4mins, and decrease it if your CPU and memory use get too high. If both are the case, then get a bigger server and/or faster disks :)
