I agree with Daniel that mrtg is not the right tool. And good luck finding
a commercially available tool that will accomplish this. I've been looking
for about 6 months and have come up with *nothing*. Cisco's CAM
(specifically for their Access Servers) looked like it would fit the bill,
but we just found out it has been end-of-lifed. If anyone knows of a tool
that does this kind of thing, please tell me soon, because I have come to
the conclusion that I'm just going to have to Write My Own.
Andreas, you may want to check out
(assuming Cisco equipment), the RADIUS-ACC-MIB and the RADUIS-AUTH-MIB and
go from there. Contact me off-list if you like; I'd like to join forces if
we're working toward the same thing.

Somebody on one of my other mailing lists used this exact quote this
