[nycbug-talk] Cacti Alternatives?

Hi all,

I'd like to set something up like cacti, but I'd really like to automate 
the creation of the graphs and templates with either puppet (which talks 
to LDAP for nodes) or LDAP directly.  Just like powerDNS is a great 
alternative for bind that allows an LDAP backend, I'm looking for an 
alternative to cacti (or a way to make cacti do what I want) that would 
allow me to use puppet, or LDAP directly, to add graphs to cacti and 
manage them.

Does anyone have any ideas?  What have others done?  It seems like one 
could always write a process that would read data from LDAP and execute 
the command line scripts for cacti (or have puppet execute the command 
line scripts for cacti based on node data in LDAP).
