For any fedault parameter, target "[_]" must be used.

Read about "Default values" here:

I use it a lot.

I have my mrtg.cfg in a file that only has default values and then, I 
include one file per router/device. So, I placed lines like:

Options[_]: bits, growright, noinfo, nobanner, nolegend
XSize[_]: 590
YSize[_]: 200

and those lines apply to all targets.

Luis Carlos.
