...and here I'm shoehorning yet another metric into Munin instead of setting up a decent monitoring system.

@galaxis I use
Munin/Monit for my server and I think it’s attractively “good enough” 😅 what makes it indecent from your perspective?

@kensanata Well, I like Munin too, since it's leightweight on the client and it's easy to write new probes. I'm fine with five minutes resolution for most things.

On the other hand, generating output pages takes quite a toll on the server - when you have a target with lots of graphs, in particular. RRD files are not super space efficient either. Alerting is rudimentary, and alert filtering is dark magic.
