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.
