I am working on something like that. I now have a script in perl that 
gathers from a host incomming and outgoing traffic of the interfaces 
that are "up"(OID . you can easy add an extra host 
to be monitored, the script wil make an .rrd file and start monitoring. 
It still needs a lot of work. for example wrong data is not checked.

The same you can do with HardDisk(OID ., Uptime(OID 
. or Load(OID . monitoring.
