Yes, but it takes a bit of work to get what you want.  I have published
a template on http://steveshipway.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=34&t=1621,
but it still needs some work.  You also need to set up snmp v3 properly
to get the multi-context information from it.

The mibs are pretty rich, if a bit complex.  if there is something in
particular that you are looking for that my template doesn't show, post
here and I might take a shot at extending my script.  my time is pretty
limited, so don't expect a fast turnaround.

Depends what you are looking for.  Traffic graphs on an FWSM are mostly
pointless, because that's not the constrained entity.  Again I have a
template posted in the same forum on Steve's site.

Note that the FWSM only supports snmp v1 (up to version 3.0) and snmp
v2c (3.1 and 4.0).  I don't run multi-context, so I'm not certain what
that would do.
