Looking at the built in standard system monitoring gauges used in the FreeNAS webinterface I often thought they were not very readable at times and could be improved quiet a bit. So when I just stumbled across www.monitorix.org I though it might be just the right thing for this „issue" as a future improvement of FreeNAS, so in case you guys were not aware of it yet, please take a look :)

I would say it is very unlikely. collectd is extremely flexible and powerful, can easily be networked, etc., and if there are UI shortcomings there are many options and alternatives.... including just shooting the data into graphite.

Have anyone successfully installed monitorix on FreeNAS? I'm trying to get it working at the moment but my skills within the FreeBSD CLI is very limited.
