Originally I only wanted todo traceroute, then I found that
traceroute exists in various incarnations on different systems. I
tried to support many different ones and found that this was rather
complex. So I took a different aproach and went for complete
about traceroute, it simply provides a rather specialized
environment for displaying data in a table.
The configuration comes from plugins sitting on the server written
in perl ... the disk free plugin is just a little example for what
this could be used too.
Note that in the traceroute example all the statistical bits
including the graphics in the last column are calculated on the fly
inside the browser, the plugin on the server side just defines that
in colon x the standard deviation of the number in colon y should
be displayed and that the value in colon z is the key.
