That seems awkward: the majority of /var/cfengine/state/env_data
data points are averages, and thus rrdool would average the averages.

I would love to dump Net-SNMP snmpd.  It's configuration management
(even automated with cfengine!) is rather ugly, and it don't work
reliabily under heavy workloads (i.e. SNMP is UDP based.)  But I
can't because cfenvd isn't generally extensible.  Perhaps cfengine
v3's cfenvd could have a configuration mechanism for gathering
additional data?
