Cacti

Cacti

Cacti is an open source, web-based frontend to RRDtool, the industry standard, high performance data logging and graphing system for time series data.

Cacti 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.

There is also SNMP support for those used to creating traffic graphs with MRTG.
