[mrtg] Another way other than snmp to get stats?

I'm fairly new to MRTG but I have gotten it working so that it gets 
information from some Red Hat Linux machines (ucd-snmp 4.2.1).  The concern 
has been raised about adding other daemons, opening up the machines for 
snmp, etc.  Are there ways other than using SNMP to get information on devices?

I've seen mention of people using a stats.pl script.  My question is 
whether this can be run from a central MRTG server on a remote/monitored 
machine?  Can I get statistics from the machines I'm monitoring using this 
script?  How would I get the script to run and to get stats back to MRTG?
