       Munin-update is a part of the package Munin, which is used in
       combination with Munin's node.  Munin is a group of programs to gather
       data from Munin's nodes, graph them, create html-pages, and optionally
       warn Nagios about any off-limit values.

       Munin-update does the gathering. It is usually only used from within

       It contacts each host's munin-node in turn, gathers data from it, and
       stores them in .rrd-files. If necessary, it will create the rrd-files
       and the directories to store them in.
