These are single servers with one frontend, and two backends.
Limitations in our monitoring utility (Zenoss) prevent me from polling

I'd also like to have some stats on the backends.

However scripting snmpwalk is ideal - I have no idea why I didn't
think of that before...

You're a genius, man. A genius.
