Hello everyone,
   I work on a Network Management tool called Internetwork Performance
Monitor, one of Cisco's set of Troubleshooting and
Monitoring applications. I was trying to integrate our application with
   I was interested in understanding the following points:

   * From the MRTG website and other web resources, i understand that
     MRTG always need an SNMP agent to get the     information. Is my
     understanding correct?
   * Can an application integrate with MRTG ? For example, can another
     application, that collects data  from the routers/switches etc..,
     supply data from its Database, in a specific format, so that MRTG
     can plot the graphs?
   * Is it possible somehow to supply data to the RRD tool from another
     Database, instead of data being collected from the device itself?
   * The RRD website talks about Frontends being developed for RRD -
     which poll network devices and put a friendly user     interface on
     it.But, i wanted to know, if we can fill the RRD tool, incase MRTG
     cannot accept data from a Database.

  It would be of great help, if you could clear my doubts.

Thanks in advance,
