Regarding original bug report in 2006:
"I can't tell the MRTG to source queries form a specific VIP on the
utility box by setting:
# more .snmp-dis/snmp.conf
The PERL POD SNMP_Util doesn't seem to honor these the way the Net-SNMP
CLI/lib/p5-Net-SNMP does, thus I can't create system-service abstraction.
Plus, it complicates firewall rules!"
Conclusion: For the record, MRTG does not and can not use Net::SNMP, it
uses SNMP::Util and SNMP::Session instead.
If one needs a network resource graphing solution and system-service
abstraction is a priority (HA/Load Balance), then consider a system that
uses the Net-SNMP libraries.
