I've been using MRTG for monitoring my NetApp filers and number of
Sun machines (Solaris 7 & Enterprise Agent) for some time now.

Now, my masters want me to restrict access to snmp. I know just bare
minimum and would appreciate if some kind sole could show me the
way. Also, how will this impact MRTG? Can MRTG pass some sort of a
password to the machine it wants to query? I've heard of 'communities'
but haven't got a clue.
