I see a reference in the response to RTG.  RTG's claim to fame looks like

I've done some work with Cricket and have figured out a way to get at it's
schema.  I've been looking at mating Cricket' s 'getter and schema with
Drraw and genDevConfig tools and putting a Mason based HTML wrapper around
the whole thing so people can pick and choose the components of charts they
want to see (per chart), (per page).  And by filling in simple web forms, it
would be easy to generate command lines for genDevConfig to go out and
create the customized SNMP queries that are needed for Dial-Peers, Cisco's
Quality of Service, etc.

Would anyone be interested in such a contraption?
