[CentOS] can't get Ethernet SNMP information

I didn't follow the whole thread but had the same problem when using net-snmp 
with bridges (an I see peth0 and that rang the bell). The problem seems to be 
that net-snmp does not like nics with same ips (I didn't find very much on 
that topic). You should see some errors from net-snmp in the syslogs of your 
managed servers. What does your syslog say?

I solved it by changing the bridge configuration from the scripts provided by 
xen /etc/xen/scripts/network-bridge to using ifcfg bridges. Then cacti could 
monitor the interfaces like normal.

Hope that helps.

Regards marc.
