Thank you, Steve, but this one is still tackling me: If I change 
Interval from 5 to 10 then apparently MRTG will start polling devices 
once every 10 minutes, so new data will by design be added 10 mins apart 
to the old logfile? How could it remain at the same 5 mins apart resolution?

BTW I can only imagine how graphs will look at 10 minute resolution. 
Probably not too familiar ;) We've really got used to the classic 5 
minute graph layout.
