How about devmon?  It requires much less care and feeding than MRTG if you are concerned about the entire device -- if you only care about certain interfaces than MRTG is probably a better fit.  However, devmon only supports a few (though common!) device types, so you might also be better off with MRTG if you are using "unusual" equipment.

Or, you can run bbmrtg.pl and have it generate alerts.
