Collector part of Munin
Munin network-wide graphing framework node
Munin is a tool for graphing all sorts of information about one or more servers and displaying it in a web interface. It uses the excellent RRDTool written by Tobi Oetiker and is written in Perl. Munin has a master/node architecture. The master connects to all the nodes at regular intervals, and asks them for data. It then stores the data in RRD-files, and if needed updates the graphs. One of the main goals have been ease of creating own “plugins” graphs.
This is the collector. It is installed on the machine that shall collect and display performance data.
