We use net-snmp and it's assortied utilites pretty heavilly here. There is a
wealth of info you can get from snmp, and it can be extended very easilly
via sh/perl and python (although I have yet to write any python-snmp code
here). We are primarilly using our snmp utils in conjunction with nagios,
although that is not say you need nagios to help present the data you can
collect. While I understand not wanting to run nagios, the plugins available
for it may be a good starting point to see how SNMP can be used to gather
system information in general (if you don't mind reading through perl/sh
code ;).
