Try rrdtool (http://rrdtool.org).  It has a responsive mailing list (and
maintainer).  It can do great things with graphs if you want to spend a
little time on them.  It also stores data in round-robin data bases that
don't grow with age.

However, if you don't feel like putting in the effort required to get
started, _Many_ people have used it already as a system/net monitor, and
there are various scripts available, which you could monitor to get
absolutely any information you wanted...

The package said "requires Microsoft Windows 95 or better" - I don't
understand why it doesn't work on my pocket calculator!
