no, that's not possible (yet). I have been thinking about this, too, but
it's quite some work and my time is very limited at the moment :/
The two problems are:
- The network code doesn't submit a hostname, so querying two switches
from one host will not work.
- SNMP-queries are generally slow, so a multi-threaded or multi-process
solution would be appropriate.
- Querying SNMP values every 10 seconds might be too much for some
hardware, so a longer interval might be neccessary..
