Original question below.

With the exception of Karl Vogel everybody suggested to have a look at various freeware alternatives (mrtg,orca) rather than develop something myself. This is not really an option because the scripts I am developing are in fact in place; it has been working since a year. What I do now is add new features and fix bugs.
I have to say though that in the past year or so products like MRTG plus add-ons such as cacti have made much progress. I would not build something from scratch now.

Thanks Karl both for your script and your input on what interval and count to use on sar.
regards oscar
