Anyone using Cacti monitoring tool?

I have few questions about Cacti. I want to understand how to actually capture Unix Load average from remote host. Also, I'm trying to figure out how to capture Disk space usage from remote hosts. For some reason, I'm getting wrong results.

    We have it in use in production and it works very well. Cacti combined with Icinga/Nagios is awesome. I wasn't the one who implemented it though. It's able to report on disk space, load average and bandwidth utilization accurately in our environment.

    That's true. I faced few problems but now it's fine. Although I still have issues with getting load average from certain debian/ubuntu servers!

    We have nagios as well. Did you integrate both nagios and cacti together or just used them separately?
