Thanks for the replies, I just got in and I'm continuing my adventure
An additional piece of confusion from the FAQ site:
Anybody have any ideas how to monitor an Ascend MAX?
Check /mrtg/contrib/ascendget directory where you unpacked mrtg.
Basically, you need to do the following:
1.Get the Ascend MIB
2.Use mrtg v2.1 or later
3.Use the modified snmpwalk included in the ascendget directory.
4.Get TCL v7.5 or later.
5.Use a cron job to snmpwalk the MAX on intervals.
6.Add up the results.
7.Write out the files.
8.Use a modified cfg with mrtg.
