SNMP via proxy

Cacti and Nagios generally poll via SNMP.   This means the traffic is
generally NAT'able.   If I really needed multiple polling SNMP servers
at the same address, I'd just throw them behind some sort of NAT

The box is at its limit and increasing its capacity will be nearly impossible. We mainly use Nagios and Cacti to monitor our network. Going forward I was thinking of setting up a few hosts whose job would be to simply relay SNMP traffic. This way moving forward we could hard code several IP's and bounce all traffic through one of these IP's.
