Since everyone here seems to be using MRTG, I have a few questions for y'all.

I am running it under NT4, and using it to monitor our Backbone Connection.
I would also like to exploit it's capabilites for other things. SO tell
me, what cool or innovative uses have YOU found for it? Anyone found a way
to monitor, graphically, how many ports of an Ascend Max are in use? So
one can see dialup usage averages, historically, etc.? Or monitoring
anything on an Ascend Box? What about stuff like monitoring Managed hubs?
(You can do that right?)

This is an invite to all you people who know the true definition of hacker,
not just the one portrayed in the movies.. What have you hacked MRTG to
work with, and how? Maybe if we get a few of these, I, or someone else,
could put up how each one was done, etc.. Have at it boys..
