 those are all easy enough to do, what would be VERY interesting is to
 graph IO operations per vhost.

 cacti is very flaky, but if you're accustomed to running other php apps,
you probably won't mind that. If not - prepare yourself for loosing graph
or two..or a dozen for no particular reason etc..

 What cacti is good at, is graphing large amount of hosts, if you're graphing
10-30 virtual servers munin is way better, but when your IP count goes to
~100 and more, cacti starts showing it's advantages.

 With munin it's fairly trivial to add some new variable to watch for, with
cacti it's a bit more complicated (which is OK for larger environments)
