Lightbulb Zabbix Templete Problem

Dear Zabbix experts,

Now I am using Zabbix to monitor Cisco devices, but there is one question about Zabbix template.

The context is as following:

I used SNMP dynamic indexes to get related information.

While retrieving interface incoming/outgoing traffic,
IF-MIB::ifOutOctets["index","ifDescr","eth0"]

But there is problem:

Different devices have different interfaces, so how to create one general template including some general information: CPU , Memory, and dynamic interface incoming / outgoing traffic against different ports on different devices?

In other words, how to automatically probe interfaces used on different devices dynamically?

In my opinion, zabbix template is just collection of items.

I would really appreciate it if you could give me some comments. Thanks in advanced!

--Peter
