Well, the "cfenvd" program collects some stuff like that; making use
of it is still at the "primitive" stage.

cfengine wasn't really intended for doing monitoring, per se; the
sorts of tools you might want to look at that *were* designed for that
would be Nagios (which looks for "events") and MRTG (which collects
statistics, and can notice things leaping past boundaries).
