I'm looking for an open source linux tool that allows me to POST (curl) server statistics to a web application for processing.

I've done a bit of research and haven't found anything. Anyone know of something similar?

Last ditch effort before I code it myself.

I'd suggest using collectd + collection and/or graphite for data collection and display.

Both can export PNG images you may display somewhere else.

I'm not sure if you're locked in to using this web app of yours to display data, I'd reconsider using something ready-made.

Handling data efficiently is no easy task, I'd rather use some solution where people put a lot of thought into that.
