Finished this up the other day:

I'm a python n00b, be gentle :)

Here's a list of the metrics they track:

To use python modules in Ganglia, you'll need the following snippet in your `gmond.conf`:

    modules { 

      module {
        name = "python_module"
        path = "/usr/lib/ganglia/"
        params = "/usr/lib/ganglia/python_modules"



Then, copy `` to `/usr/lib/ganglia/python_modules/`, and `ganglia.conf` to `/etc/ganglia/conf.d` and restart gmond.

Please let me know if you have any problems, I'm happy to help :)
