This is not way off topic for cfengine. Cfenvd performs a certain kind
of monitoring, and recently the people from SLAC wrote cfetool which is
supposed to use some of the cfengine in an rrdtool kind of way --
although it is so poorly documented that Ihave no idea how it works.

I am hoping to get a student to make a web-based monitor using cfenvd
