If the network drivers were standardized to use /proc/net/snmp for
monitoring with any SNMP manager. The CMU agent, modified by Juergen
Schoenwaelder, Erik Schoenfelder and friends for Linux, could then be
used to control things like the IP firewalling and such from the
manager.

I have used the tkined / scotty package for monitoring several
machines. It would be a boon for administrators to have control over
their servers.
