I am hoping to setup an SNMP trap based on bandwidth utilization across a specific port crossing a threshold or nearly capacity of the link.

I would be applying these to ports on various 3750 / 2960 cisco devices.

Thoughts?

You can use MRTG for this. MRTG can run on various linux distros and windows also. You can graph any port that you want to using SNMP. It is pretty easy to setup. MRTG also supports thresh hold alerting so that you can receive an email if the bandwidth goes over/under your desired thresh hold.
