SNMP for call info from a Cisco AS5400 Call Collector

enigmae has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

I have been researching the SNMP access methods from PERL for collecting information from a CISCO AS5400 router/modem bank. I originally wanted to test my code on the 5400 but thought i would ask around if there are problems with running code on a production system in SNMP? Is there a way to mess up equipment using SNMP from over a network or should i test code by using a local SNMP service then try it on the production system. I spec'ed PERL and Net::SNMP for my language and access system however i can't seem to find an SNMP server/service for linux that i can install locally (redhat 7.3) I have found many programs for seeing MIB's on networks etc... but no snmp services. I hope this isn't too off-topic for this site,
thanks for your time and comments.

    have you considered using MRTG?

      I have used MRTG for showing statistics on the CISCO switches however management wants a more detailed report then MRTG provides ( taking serveral different MIBS to determine # of calls, # of bad calls, dropped calls, etc... then query the CAS(conditional access system) database to see if errors in the command stream are related to call-collector problems.) but I think i will look at it to see if it would benefit some other aspect of the process.
      Thanks for your reply,
