  Subject: [nSLUG] Recommendation for a graphical system monitor.

  My boss is interested in seeing a graphical representation of the usage of the system resources on several *nix machines (RH enterprise 4 and CentOS 4.x).  I'm thinking mostly CPU and IO, but the more information we can get (in one place) the better.  Ideally it would span back a day or more so we can review. 

  I'll summarize the business cases we want to use this monitoring tool to solve in case there are additional suggestions :)
  - When do we upgrade server x because it is no longer handling the load we wish to put on it. 
  - Is server x suffering while server y is twiddling thumbs? (ie distribution of load across multiple machines)
  - Are there activity times on server x which are overloaded where re-scheduling is possible?

  The majority of the load consists of ftping files, mostly incoming although some are outgoing as well.  Therefore I expect that I/O will be the main point of interest. 

  Anyone have any recommendations?  (Simple terms please - *nix newb here :)
