  I have a good question for you. I started to hate cacti for a few
reasons I dont want to get into.

I know that a few other trending / monitoring projects have reached
critical mass have a good number of people using them.
What do you recommend I move to.  Here are my requirements.

1. SNMP Polling
2. RRD , SQLite, or Berklydb data storage
3. I don't want it to lower my tco or bake me a cake .
4. Flexible trend management.  (If I want to trend nfs read operations
for 100 servers into one graph I should not have to jump threw hoops)

So people have pointed me to

1. zabbix.com
2. munin-monitoring.org
3. ganglia.sourceforge.net

What are you using ?
