I would like to monitor basic traffic and mem/cpu usage stats on a 
RedHat Linux 6.2 system. I understand that the default MRTG is set 
for a router. Does anyone have an example of a configuration that can 
read from the stock SNMPD configuration of RedHat (or maybe any 
linux) server? 

This was all I saw in the archives when I looked, I am not sure what 
to do with it.

Here's the useful mibs I have found for Redhat machines(this is with 
ucd-snmp loaded)

  Linux Machines

  .                 Eth0 Output Stats
  .                 Total Available Memeory
  .                 Total Used Memory
  .                Total Free Memory
  .                Shared Memory
  .                Buffers
  .                Cached

  .              Load Average -5 Minute
  .              Load Average -15 Minute

Thank you for any help, I am new to MRTG and SNMP and am trying to
