       cfgstoragemaker - MRTG config generator for storage monitoring via SNMP


       cfgstoragemaker community@host [community@host] [...]


       The purpose of cfgstoragemaker is to remotely generate  a  MRTG  config
       file  in order to graph all the storage devices (disk, memory and swap)
       of one or more specific host(s) via SNMP.

       As you can imagine, it was heavily inspired by cfgmaker.


       One of the most important advantages of  cfgstoragemaker  is  that  you
       don’t  have to install and run MRTG on the servers you want to monitor,
       everything is done remotely on a distinct  and  centralized  monitoring
       host. The datas are acquired by SNMP.

       Moreover,  you  don’t  have  to worry about the list of all the mounted
       partitions and their size, cfgstoragemaker will do that for you.


       Cfgstoragemaker is written in Perl.
