Graphing DHCP pools

Our developers (I can make no such claim) developed a script that populates a web page on the fly with a simple report of what pools we have and how many of their addresses are currently allocated. It could possibly be modified and used to populate a database for graphing, but I think you probably have plenty of options already presented to you, so I will hold off throwing another one on the pile.

Let me know if you want me to inquire about the details.

Subject: Graphing DHCP pools

Hey guys, I'm looking for a solution that can take the data from our dhcp server and use that to create charts and graphs of of our scopes. Currently we are using a homegrown bash script that uses the Google API for charts to do the graphing and create the charts. But, although its very nice looking it takes ALOT of re-working the script every time we add a pool or adjust a scope. I'm looking for another solution. One that can automatically detect and put up a new chart when we add scopes and one that could possibly retain historical data. I've thought about solarwinds but I'm not sure if it can plug into Linux like this or if it even has such a feature for dhcpd.

Any suggestions?
