The plan with SNMP is to throw it in the bin, and the prometheus stuff is its replacement. I have an open PR to do the "throwing in the bin" but haven't merged it yet. The prometheus stuff is merged on master, but I don't think we (FM) are making full use of the latest iteration of it (which fixed a bunch of performance issues) yet, and I won't quite trust it until I see it under load.

I would like to have this considered stable for 3.2, but inasmuch as is currently possible the work is already done and sitting on master for people to play with.
