Cacti, the complete RRDTool-based graphing solution

After using MRTG for years, the time had come to move to its successor RRDTool which separated the front-end graphing out from the polling engine. I stumpled upon Cacti which provided a much deeper front-end experience to RRDTool and have been running it for years now.

Had my share of pain getting it to run under Windows, but now can't live without it. I use it to graph the typical interface utilization metrics, but also load-balancer rules and services on Cisco CSS.
