[smokeping-users] Graph throughput distribution via SNMP

Doing throughput tests on a live working pipe seems like a *very bad* idea.

[In case it's not apparent, saturating a working pipe is going to cause
packet loss (or other bad things) for anything going over the connection at
that point in time. Doing so every 5m seems like an even worse idea.

Further, depending on what's using bandwidth, your throughput test will
yield results that don't much mirror the actual capacity of the pipe.]

If you're really interested [in spite of my warnings] in doing something
like this, you might be able to adapt jperf.
