Back in March we had a thread on monitoring software [0].
You might find a solution in that thread that better suits your environment.

And there are other trend graphing applications like Cacti that will give
you the same sort of historical data.  Data points are also collected via
SNMP, but if you write custom scripts Cacti can use you're not limited to
just things exported via SNMP.

[But extensibility via scripts is common to most open source software and
exporting data points via SNMP is a best practice.]
