Steve,Thanks. It might do what I need.
I have tried the following:
22.214.171.124.126.96.36.199.188.8.131.52/WaLK184.108.40.206.220.127.116.11.18.104.22.168.5.1.4):secret at 192.
Options[UDPJITTER-RTTLATEST]: integer, gauge
So I'm plotting the first value, and then performing a division on the
second 2 values, for the second value. I tested 'WaLKx' with the
following and it works!!
#UDP JITTER....Testing.....Just RTTSum and NumOfRTT.....
.22.214.171.124.126.96.36.199.188.8.131.52:cisco at 192.168.10.1
It's just the division on the second parameter I'm stuck on.
Thanks for your help.

Historical reasons. MRTG originally graphed just router interface
traffic, so there would always be an IN and an OUT. When it grew to
graph anything, it still had the requirement for there to be two
variables per Target, although one could be suppressed using NOO or NOI.

You may be able to achieve this with some of the strange pseudo-OID
configurations for specifying the Target. Not sure as you want the last
in the walk, it may only be possible to grab the first? There is a
SnMPWaLK magic token that I can't remember the syntax for.

MRTG should be able to take care of the averaging for you. You can also
use the Factor directive to divide by 1000 if these are milliseconds,
if you want.

This is way wrong, you cannot have `external scripts` and SNMP. It's
one or the other. You'll just need to write your external script to do
all the work itself, and spit out the two numbers according to the MRTG
plugin protocol (IE, decimalnumber, newline, decimalnumber, newline,
optionaluptimestring, newline, optionaldescription, newline; then exit
with status 0)
