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.
