Can anyone suggest any light weight snmp daemons for FreeBSD other than
net-snmp and bsnmpd ?  net-snmp seems like its getting a lot of bloat
these days and currently the port has an unfixed security issue. I dont
like bsnmp, as I cannot run it as a non root user (at least I could not,
the last time I tried)...  All I need is something that cacti can poll
for traffic stats for the most part.
