The original version (1993 vintage) is posted at http://www.civd.com/~avg .
It has man pages in English, and was used (maybe still is used) to monitor
SprintLink backbone and some 500 frame-delay private networks on a single
SparkStation 2.  So i guess it's pretty much adequate for many mid-size ISPs
today.

It has real-time alerts and postscript report generator, it does _not_
have any fancy eye candy.  In other words, this is a piece of software
designed for real operational support as opposed to boss pacifiers
commonly sold as network management platforms.  And yes, it is simple and
easily integrated with automated configuration management systems.
