Can anyone offer up ideas on how you manage any automation in this
regard for their infrastructure gear traffic graphs?
welcome, off-list, but we're as small as our budget is).
Not sure how you're doing your graphs currently, but have you considered Cacti?
If automating MRTG config is hard, automating Cacti config is about as close
to "impossible" as one can get without popping around to the Augean stables.
