Orca User --

First, let me say that you have an auspicious name.

Second, your "orcallator.se" process is what collects the data.  
However, you need to run a separate process to munch the data and spit 
out HTML happiness.  In your orca/bin directory, there should be a 
script called "orca".  It is a Perl script.  I run mine via a wrapper 
bourne-shell script that there's a copy of in /etc/rc3.d/S90orca, so 
that the data-cruncher starts up whenever that machine reboots.  Here's 
the process as it is running:

/usr/bin/perl -w /usr/orca/bin/orca -daemon -logfile 
/npd/dmichael/orca/orca.out \

You probably don't want to run your data cruncher on the same machine as 
you're monitoring.  I run my cruncher on a Sun Blade 150, with 512MB of 
RAM.  It crunches data generated from about 9 or 10 machines, and has a 
sustained load-average of about 0.16, with the orca perl script using up 
about 2% of the CPU, with occasional spikes, especially when you first 
start it.
