[mrtg] MRTG adding devices

MRTG's threshold checking is pretty simple, and you can only get either (a) an email, or (b) run an external action script.  Check the Thresholding manual page at http://oss.oetiker.ch/mrtg/doc/mrtg-reference.en.html and see the Thresh*[] directives.
If you want more advanced Thresholding and alarms, then I'd suggest you look into something like Nagios which is a proper status monitor.  MRTG is a historical graphing package, not really an alerting system

Dear all
I want a method to add a lot of devices in one step without needing to run the command "perl cfgmaker community_name at device_IP"  multiple times by the number of devices that I want to add. I just want o do that in a single step.
                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                  Thanks a lot.
