I've attached the one we use, which is part of our switch management suite.
We run it every five minutes from cron, with the index and cgi-bin files 
being generated periodically by scanning the switches' interface tables and 
combining the results of that with the switch configuration files.

Pretty well anything which can do getnext would do too, of course.
