It might be possible to extract the SNMP-part of OMSA and package it
as RPM.

@Matt Domsch: I am willing to do that, but I need some help from
              somebody who knows the architecture of OMSA.
              What parts are needed to monitor the storage system.
              I hope this is possible without kernel modules and
              Java frontends.
