Cricket is a high performance, flexible system for monitoring trends in time-series data. It was developed to help network managers visualize and understand the traffic on their networks, but it can be used for all kinds of other jobs, as well. Cricket has three pieces: the collector, the grapher, and the config tree. The collector runs from cron and fetches data from a number of devices according to the info it finds in the config tree. The grapher is a CGI application that lets users to traverse the config tree from a web browser and see what the collector recorded. The config tree is hierarchical, which avoids duplicate info in the config files.
