Supermon was developed for clustering, but really is fairly general
purpose (I'm looking into using it on a variety of servers).

It consists of a few parts. Supermon itself and mon are daemons. mon
gathers data from the kernel and passes it up to supermon. supermon simply
aggregates the data and serves it to various clients.

The other two parts are supermon_proc and a sensor module. The sensor
module just presents the sensor data in /proc/sys/supermon_sensors in the
form of an S expression (a Lisp like expression, easily parsable and human
readable as well).
