I can only urge you to have a look at the smokeping documentation
on alerts, it is even possible to write alert plugins, this should
cater for the most exlusive data analysis sceeeems ...

as for that 'I want to see all the detail but still have a graph
that covers many days' question that has been written about ...

If your idea of detail is to see the maximum median instead of the
average median, this can certainly be done ...

I think you will all be excited to hear that I plan to have a graph
construction mode in the major rewrite I am planning. There you
should be able to add these kind of things to your graph ...
