I've always thought that SNMP would be great for UNIX. But everytime I
have ever tried to really make it work, it just doesn't. snmp agent
issues, OID issues, polling issues, UDP network issues.
My previous experiences have been so heinous I can easily recognize my own
bias against SNMP for unix at this point.
But what is wierd is it works so well for comm/network equipment.
