Cacti Script for Asterisk SIP/IAX2 Monitoring and Graphing

If you are using Cacti for you network monitoring, you can add Asterisk to the list of servers/ services that cacti monitors.
Cacti is a complete frontend to RRDTool, it stores all of the necessary information to create graphs and populate them with data in a MySQL database. The frontend is completely PHP driven. Along with being able to maintain Graphs, Data Sources, and Round Robin Archives in a database, cacti handles the data gathering. There is also SNMP support for those used to creating traffic graphs with MRTG.
But the cream here is what created and posted the Cacti script for Asterisk IP-PBX statistics. It's based on Python, works over AMI connection and provides comprehensive graphs like this (more at where IConnection posted it);Astpligg lead me to the news.
