thanks for pointing me towards the event scheduler, this could
probably be used to collect data on the server side. I would like to
keep my project focus as it is, but will keep in mind that adding a
server side data collector could be desired one day.

The goal of my project is not to compete with full-scale monitoring
tools like cacti, but simply to build something useful from the data
currently displayed on the server status page.
