[hobbit] big brother replacement

For posterity:


We use mrtg to do all our SNMP polling (I know devmon is the popular
solution hear, but it's messy and so multi-filed so we have a bad taste
for it) and for traps we have a script we stopped using recently, but it
was setup much like Henrik stated.  It was just added to
hobbit-alerts.cfg and life was good.

I believe there is a workaround for it using something else.  I know you
can find it in the mailing list archives - it has been asked and
discussed many times.

I read that Henrik has SNMP planned for a later release, too, though I
don't believe that is confirmed.

The biggest problem I have with going to Hobbit is there is no snmp trap
sending support.  We don't use BB as our main interface for showing all
alerts, but it is required and we do send snmp traps from the BBPAGER to
our main dashboard of alerts.  Is this functionality in Hobbit yet?
