If you're going through all this trouble, you might as well measure some interface statistics such as: - CRC errors, these are an important clue indicating lower layer problems - collisions, if you use any non-switched ethernet (or even if it's switched: duplex mismatch is a bad thing and it happens) - over- and underruns, these indicate (transient) high CPU loads - input/output drops, to see if you are experiencing congestion And: - router CPU load These should all be easy to measure with MRTG if you can find out how to read the info from the box using SNMP.
