What issues do you have with procallator?

Yes, we definitely need an OS independent data gatherer.

Here are two projects that I'm aware of:

PCP	http://oss.sgi.com/projects/pcp/
libgtop	http://www.gnome.org/softwaremap/projects/libgtop/

libgtop doesn't look too well maintained, while PCP was last released on
July 16, 2003.

Any other packages out there to leaverage?
