I have an W2K box that we are running MRTG 2.9.25 on and I would like to do
what was mentioned below.  We frequently have a couple of wan connections
that use all the bandwidth available.  Sending traps would be a great way
for us to monitor it but I have no idea how to implement it.

>The easiest way we found to achieve this was called a standard shell script
when the threshold is passed with a few >parameters available from the
SETENV lines in the cfg file. The shell script then contains the snmptrap
command and parameters to forward onto an snmpd host. I can send specifics
but it was actually very easy.
