Hmm.  That should be:

I'm assuming that you mean the snmpif- rrd.  This rrd definition is *magic* 
in that it is known about by the snmp-collector and handled specially.  I 
was hoping to add code to permit it not to be special, but I've never 
gotten around to it.  The upshot is that (as documented in the rrd 
definition file) the oids that it uses don't have to be coded in the rrd 
definition and others that you add will be ignored.  Sorry.  It's on my 
list, but as I currently have no SNMP devices to monitor, I have no proper 
way of testing any code and less need for it.
