I am not certain that I understand exactly what you want to do.  Are the
thresholds independent of one another?  Then you might be able to do it
using expressions.

For example, suppose you were already collecting ifInDiscards

MIB . ifInDiscards units COUNTER R
C jshanks1.raleigh.ibm.com 180 0.000000 0.000000 xA s 58720263 ALL -

And you wanted to have a different threshold for some other machines.  You
could go to mibExpr.conf and create and expression for that MIB variable
times 1,  for example

myifnDiscards1 \
"ifnDiscards * 1" \
        . 1 *

myifnDiscards2 \.
"ifnDiscards * 1" \
        . 1 *

Since these are expressions, which can use the same MIB variables as other
expressions, and they have different  labels, snmpCollect regards them as
unique collections, and you can add both to your snmpCol.conf, even through
the xnmcollect GUI.

MIB myifnDiscards1 myifnDiscards1 units EXPRESSION R
C jshanks1.raleigh.ibm.com 3600 0.000000 0.000000 A d 58720263 ALL -
MIB myifnDiscards2 myifnDiscards2 units EXPRESSION R
C jhanks1.raleigh.ibm.com 3600 0.000000 0.000000 A d 58720263 ALL -
