Yes, UCD (which I didn't know before, thanks) is a fine piece of software
and could be used as a basis. But it doesn't solve the problem. On
Digital Unix, I have a SNMP agent which implements the complete Host
Resources MIB (RFC 1514). UCD doesn't implement it. If I switch to UCD, I
will have to rewrite it.

Worse, there are many bugs in the difficult area of data retrieving (for
instance, UCD cannot dump the TCP connection table). Again, I need to
keep the Digital agent. Since I cannot run UCD at the same time, I have
to use other solutions than SNMP.
