Correct.  In a host template, you can't use $default_target, so you need
to create two lines: one that calls $router, and one that calls

Target[$target_name]: cpmCPUTotal5secRev.$instance&cpmCPUTotal1minRev.$instance:$router
SnmpOptions[$target_name]: $v3options

Look at Steve Shipway's template support forum at
for more examples.
