The question seems a bit out of context but here goes:

Set up SNMP on important network devices.
Set up Paessler PRTG network monitoring on a computer to receive the data.
Generate reports from there.

Yes.  Just as I suggested.  You run it all the time on the monitoring computer to collect the data.  SNMP runs all the time as well without doiing anything more than settting it up.  At the end of the day you look at the results.  Provides a free version that will cover 10 sensors.  If you need more than that, purchase it starting at 100 sensors (e.g. device ports).

Cacti (www.cacti.net), ntop (www.ntop.org), Whats Up Gold, and Solarwinds are good tools (Cacti and Ntop are free).  These will be collector servers that will accept SNMP packets and you will be able to monitor in real time and create reports.  As previously mentioned SNMP will need to be enabled on devices and servers.
