There is really not much difference of running MRTG on OS X than other
platform. I use MRTG to monitor routers, ping times, temp and several other
things with no problem.

Setting up the web server part is a non issue as all you have to do is have
your WorkDir set to /Library/WebServer/Documents/what_ever_folder_you_want
and then turn on Web Serving in the Admin or System Prefs Panel.

To Monitor OS X Client you will need to install net-snmp (OS X Server has
this installed as default) and then just run cfgmaker -c public localhost >
mrtg.cfg to get your network In/Out throughput.

One day I will write a proper guide on MRTG, net-snmp and OS X.
