Cacti


Cacti is an open-source, web-based network monitoring and graphing tool
designed as a front-end application for the open-source, industry-standard
   Cacti is a complete frontend to rrdtool, it stores all of the necessary information
to create graphs and populates them with data in a MySQL database. The
frontend is completely PHP driven. Along with being able to maintain Graphs,
Data Sources, and Round Robin Archives in a database, cacti handles the data
gathering also. There is also SNMP support for those used to creating traffic
graphs with MRTG.
  This package requires a functional MySQL database server on either the
installation host or remotely accessible system. If you do not already have a
database server available, you should also install mysql-server.
The primary features of Cacti include:

 • unlimited graph items
 • auto-padding support for graphs
 • graph data manipulation
 • flexible data sources
 • data gathering on a non-standard timespan
 • custom data-gathering scripts
 • built-in SNMP support
 • graph templates
 • data source templates
 • host templates
 • tree, list, and preview views of graph data
 • user-based management and security
