[rrd-users] A Multi-Threaded SNMP Get ?

I work for an ISP which has a a large number of routers and I often have a 
need for a high performance SNMP collector to collect data from a number of 
routers. I have managed to achieve reasonably high performance by spawning 
multiple collectors but it's still a bit clunky and I am searching for a 
better way of doing it.

Does anyone know of work that has been done towards creating a 
multi-threaded version of the SNMP modules for perl? I am considering 
modifying SNMP_util and/or SNMP_Session to open multiple sockets at once and 
use select to multiplex between them.

Has this been done before - I don't want to re-invent the wheel.
