Ah ha!  Yes, that's what I've got here on my home network.  A DEChub 900
with various bits plugged into it for the production network, and
another nearly identical unit for "play".

No FDDI active though -- nothing to plug it into (though I suppose I
could bridge the two hubs with it!  :-)

I currently only watch the short-term traffic graphs with Scotty/TkIned
but I'm working on getting RRDtool and one of its front-ends to do more
long-term monitoring.
