MRTG can trend the traffic utilization for any MIB-2 compliant
SNMP-enabled device (switch, router, Linux, Windows, even a toaster if
it's got a network stack and SNMP). Virtually all SNMP-enabled devices
are MIB-2 compliant. I've never run into a device that wasn't.
It simply checks the byte counters for the Layer 2 interfaces (PPP,
Ethernet, ATM) available, so no logs are analyzed.
