My new replacement for gnuplot? ... Munin ...

I'm currently investigating the new hotness of Munin to replace my old and busted gnuplot graphs. Munin looks much more involved than generating a format file for gnuplot and letting it fly, but it looks like Munin handles text on graphs waaaay better than gnuplot.

Check out the purty examples here: Example Site.

Automagically Graphing on Linux

So my last post was about administration on Linux. After running Oracle on Windows for way too many years we migrated our Oracle systems to 64-bit Linux over the past year.

Now that we're on Linux I needed a lightweight way to capture and graph some performance data. The performance data was a mix of OS utilities and 3rd party utilities, but all the utilities output text, so I knew I could screen scrape the output, massage it a little, and save the data to a file. After I had the data in a file I knew I could run it through GnuPlot to graph it.
