as some of you may have seen in the roadmap the next minor version,
4.1, will include a plugin to query devices using SNMP. This is NOT
intended to be a replacement for the network plugin but a possibility to
get statistics from devices that cannot run collectd themselves, such as
switches, UPSes, rack monitoring systems, etc.
SNMP is a very generic method for accessing data which makes it
challenging to map the SNMP data to a representation in collectd. I hope
the solution I came up with is both, easy to use and powerful enough to
collect all the data you need. A draft of the manpage is on the web.
Any feedback, ideas, comments, bugreports, success stories, etc are
greatly welcome :)
