Hi,

I also use Nagios for monitoring events, and I'm quite happy with it, 
but I'm looking for a complementary tool for performance/trend 
monitoring, since I'm not very happy with the Nagios Addons like 
NagiosGrapher, PNP and the like (limited functionality, high 
installation effort).

I've also taken a look at Cacti, but it seems not very mature yet and 
integration into Nagios is also rather tedious if you don't want two 
separate solutions doing things twice.

Recently I stumbled over Munin (http://sourceforge.net/projects/munin/), 
which looks interesting, but I didn't have the time to take a look at it 
yet.

Anybody using Nagios and Munin together and want's to share some 
experience? :-)

best regards,
