Where can I find add-ons for the Graphite graphing tool, to monitor server memory usage, disk/network activity and other common metrics?

Be careful graphite doesn't collect any data, it displays data that some other process send to it.

Check for a list of tools that are graphite friendly, I use collectd+collectd-carbon[1] it works very well

Carbon uses Whisper, which in turn only allows "average" for the reduction function when promoting to older buckets. – Jon Watte Jun 21 '11 at 5:04
