yes, this is what we do. we have one 'general' box, for reporting,
stats and the like. mrtg mainly gathering stats from important boxes
only problem in that dept. is that ucd-snmp is quite flaky.
Also, MRTG is quite a pain to maintain as it grows. i intend to write
'templates' and then have a script to have maintain the individual
configs files (which are all included into the main mrtg config file).
but obviously that takes time.
