     Re: [snips-users] new hostmon-client.linux ??

IMHO, hostmon should just pick stats that are collected by sar. sar is available and running by default on most systems now and it's averages/deltas (over 10/20 min) are by far better than deltas collected by hostmon agent (1-2 second deltas).
If not sar - then snmpmon that would keep values over the interval (like other monitors do) to calculate deltas.

Some stats are missing from sar - like mailq, disk space - but for them you don't need deltas - you need current values.
