I actually submitted a patch to mrtg that did just that, so it would not
have to be an external script:


I don't know when the next version of mrtg will be released that
includes this feature.

With the help of a friend we actually did just that with a script. Did
the `snmpwalk etc | grep value | wc -l` where the value is a constant in
the username so it's not counting the console login, etc. The output of
the script shows
No. users
No. users
Router uptime
Router name
As I understand it. So for now I'll just stick with the script. It still
would be nice to have an OID the reports the VPDN users. Oh well. Thanks
for everybody's help!
