ganglia (distributed monitoring system)

Ganglia is a scalable distributed monitoring system for high-performance
computing systems such as clusters and Grids. It is based on a hierarchical
design targeted at federations of clusters.

databases. If you want to enable this, you'll have to enable it with the
OPT variable and 'gmetad' as value, then execute the build script as
follows: OPT=gmetad ./ganglia.SlackBuild

In order to build gmetad as part of this package, you'll need to have
RRDTool installed. It is available from
