I too have produced such a beastie, called (imaginatively) cfgmaker-host.pl
that will recognise Solaris, ucd-snmp and Linux, along with the host-MIB and
network settings.  It works moderately well for generating MRTG files for
monitoring servers.  Also I have a number of templates for if you are using
the pNSclient or nrpe (nagios agents) so that you can collect data from
them.  All are available from my website in the routers.cgi download
package, should anyone be inclined to grab a copy.

Mike - Ill be taking a look at your script, too, since you probably know of
a whole bunch of OIDs I can pillage.  Please pillage my script in the same
way if you have the wish. :-)
