I enjoyed looking at monitoring tools like Grafana or Zabbix, and
thought it would be cool to have something similar for my servers and
computers. When I looked at their installation guides, they suddenly
seemed less cool due to their large number of heavy dependencies.

Since I enjoy building everything from scratch, I decided to make my
own monitoring graphs as well.

This was inspired by statsd.
