you can pass a regular expression to the "Host" option to achieve this.
Something along the lines of:

    Host "/^bngsti/"
    Plugin "cpu"
    Type "percent"
    CalculateSum true

As Giovanni mentioned, though, a front-end is liekly better suited to do
this. I think that facette (https://facette.io/) is able to do that.
