Torrus is an alternative software platform to MRTG, Cricket, and Cacti. In most cases it brings more flexibility and performance. It is able to poll more than 50,000 SNMP OIDs every 5 minutes from a single moderately equipped server, with simultaneous threshold monitoring of half of them. Torrus is designed to be a universal data series processing framework. Its scalable hierarchical design, application-independent core, and highly customizable architecture make it an attractive choice both for small installations and for big enterprise or carrier networks. Although most users deploy Torrus for SNMP monitoring, it might be useful for data series of any nature. Tobi Oetiker's RRDtool is used for data storage.
