       Munin’s node is a daemon that Munin connects to fetch data. This data
       is stored in .rrd-files, and later graphed and htmlified. It’s designed
       to let it be very easy to graph new datasources.

       Munin-node is a small perlscript listening to port 4949 using
       Net::Server. It reads all the plugins in /etc/munin/plugins/ on
       startup.  The node accepts the following commands:

       list [node]
            list available plugins for host. If no hostname is specified, list
            plugins on host running munin-node

            List nodes that has plugins in this munin-node.

       config <plugin>
            output plugin configuration

       fetch <plugin>
            output plugin values

            Print versionstring

       quit disconnect


       These plugins can be in you language of choice: bash, perl, python, C.
       The plugins can be run in two modes: with and without the
       "config"-parameter. When run with "config" as parameter, the plugin
       should output the configuration of the graph. When run without
       parameters, the plugin should output just values

               # /etc/munin/plugins/load config
               graph_title Load average
               graph_args --base 1000 -l 0
               graph_vlabel load
               load.label load
               load.draw LINE2
               load.warning 10
               load.critical 120

               # /etc/munin/plugins/load
               load.value 0.43
