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.
