Does zenoss give you a reasonable way to export data to other tools for 
reporting or longer term trend analysis?  Cacti has a way to get the 
individual data samples via http.  Opennms has a way to get 
min/max/average over a specified time range.  Neither is exactly what 
I'm looking for, but better than nothing.

An example of what I'd like to do is to find the peak total bandwidth 
used (at the same time) across a group of interfaces, and be able to do 
reports of that grouping over long time spans where individual 
interfaces in the group will change.  Or the same for other metrics like 
CPU use.  So far I haven't found any tools that deal with fail-over and 
load-balance groupings in a reasonable way.
