I'm using RRDTool now for a lot of things, but it's just a
database...I need to feed in the data I need...that's the hard
part...getting the data. Same goes with Nagios/Netsaint. I know they
do the disk % used, but I'm fairly confident they don't do busy
%...I'll check though...I forgot about that.
