Matter of fact, Cacti was the reason why I moved to a new platform, only 
to find I have build issues with Spine on x86_64, and no RPM's are 
available on this (my build issues are lib related) and Cacti works 
perfectly for my long term graphing. Though upgrading 400 rra's from 
x86_32 to x86_64 was a task.
