The thing I'm particularly interested in is a way to aggregate values 
across fairly dynamic groups: total interface traffic across a set of 
routers or switch ports, tcp connection counts across a set of host 
interfaces, etc.  And I want to track the history of the aggregate trend 
for the groups even when the members come and go and the numbers in the 
group vary.  Most of the things I've seen so far only deal with 
individual entities and if they understand groups at all, they don't 
maintain the history of the aggregated values when the members change.
