I'm sad no one's interested in this!
I don't understand how it can be that a tool designed to consume very few resources, and which is necessary, is not included in DD-WRT.
Why do you need SNMP when you could just telnet/ssh into DD-WRT and issue commands?
Because I use some monitoring tools that use SNMP for getting graphs.
I dunno, but is SNMP mainly for corporations with huge number of devices? Most DD-WRT users are home users!
A lot of home users use DD-WRT with advanced features.
And the status page of DD-WRT is already showing much information.
Think on this: For years the SNMP support has included in DD-WRT. However, some years ago it has removed on devices with small Flash. So the only reason for removing it it's the size consumed in the ROM. No other reason involved, as it continues to be inside the last releases for other devices.
So, my suggestion it's simple: replace the quite OLD and ANCIENT snmpd daemon, and replace it with a FRESH and NEW mini-snmpd that it's perfect for this project.
Anyway, if someone had the TIME and KNOW-HOW to integrate mini-snmpd with various builds of DD-WRT...
As the configuration file is compatible between snmpd and mini-snmpd, for BrianSlayer will be very easy to migrate to it. I'm sure this change will be effortless.
