Nokia firewalls are something I've been asked to support--and they do

v2 by turning off encryption, but I've yet to see it work.

Oh my!  I think that's what I've been missing.  The man page seems to
talk in terms of data collection, however...so I hope there's someway
to set a threshold based on rate of change.

Excellent.  Hopefully I can lop at least one thing off the list of
stuff that appears to require an external script! 

Thanks for the pointers!
