RRDMON - Graphical System Perfomance Monitor
RRDMON is a graphical system performance recording and display tool. The rrdmon daemon is collecting system performance data and storing it in rrd-files. The rrdmon web interface displays the recorded data using a web interface.
At this time rrdmon runs on AIX (IBM's Unix variant)
Some more platforms are under development
Just jump over to the RRDMON demo site to have a look at what RRDMON provides.

In some of my Unix projects I needed a simple system monitor with some long term storage features. After some trials and failures with gnuplot I stumbled across MRTG. Using some scripts and monitor (and AIX freeware tool) I fed data into MRTG. Unfortunately MRTG was limited to two variables and had some other limitations. Then RRDtool by Toby Oetiker came along. RRDtool eliminated most of MRTG's limitations and proved to be an ideal vehicle for my data collections. As the data collection with shell scripts was cumbersome I decided to write rrdmon. As base served monitor, where I had to replace the ASCII or log file output with calls to rrdtool.
