We have a decent number of Rackspace accounts and I'm adding the RS monitoring agent on most of my production servers. Thing is in order to view a snapshot of what is happening on each server I have to login to that specific account and then click that specific server.

I'm wondering if there are any 3rd party tools out there that I can aggregate this data and display it like it's displayed when I login to Rackspace and view it from a dashboard.

Anyone know of anything like that?

Valien - This is likely a common problem for users with multiple RS Cloud Accounts. I'm asking around to see what we have recommended in the past to address this. – Chris Rasco Oct 23 '13 at 20:20
Chris - thanks for the comment and email. I'll open a ticket with you guys on this. Frustrating with SF guidelines as I'm asking for help and not sure how to reword this. I want product recommendations. Go figure. :( – Valien Oct 24 '13 at 13:11

Instead of using Rackspace's monitoring you can easily set up a server yourself and use tools like Cacti, Munin or Nagios.

Otherwise another idea would be to just write a script which logs into every account and then fetches the data by scraping it off the website.

Good suggestion but complicates things a little more (one more server to worry about, etc). But maybe I can throw one of those tools on one of my local systems. – Valien Oct 23 '13 at 19:25
