A while back I messed around with NSClient which is an agent used to
access Windows PerfMon data for the Nagios monitoring package.
Since I knew I could get to perfmon stuff with it I hacked up an RRDTool
interface to dump stats so folks could see the pretty graphs.
This has been the closest thing I've found in the past although I
haven't looked recently.
We shied away from SNMP do to not being able to insist on it for
client's servers and potential security issues.
