I use both, and the 9000 (renamed 4007) backbone gigabit concentrator
I only monitor bandwidth through each port, currently.

CFGmaker, as described by others, is fine.

Getif or ActiveSNMP can help walk the MIB and find the corrrect item to

For each physical interface, the interface number is the stack number and
the (two digit) port number, so port 5 on unit 3 will be interface 305. The
'interface' number for the VLANs are much higher.

If you are going to monitor all your ports, I would strongly recommend
moving to RRD for storing the data, and I like Routers2.cgi for viewing.

Any further questions, please feel free to drop me a direct Email
