What is the problem that you're trying to solve?  If by "stats" you mean
traffic in and out of each server, then MRTG straight out of the box with
the regular cfgmaker monitoring just the switch will do just fine.  You'll
need SNMP running on the switch only.

If you want to drill down into such things as disk space, CPU, swaps, etc.
on the servers (anything other than in and out traffic), then you'll need
to customize.  This customization can either be SNMP or scripts on the
servers or both depending on what you're trying to measure.

Read the archives, the docs, and the contrib directory in the distribution.

Odds are pretty good that someone else has needed to do something similar
before and included some hints, sample scripts, or a complete package.
