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 .22.214.171.124.126.96.36.199.1.7). 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 .188.8.131.52.184.108.40.206.3.1), Uptime(OID
.220.127.116.11.18.104.22.168.1.0) or Load(OID .22.214.171.124.4.1.2021.10.1.3) monitoring.
