[collectd] Suggestions for implementation of seperation of collection server from display/analysis

   The documentation seems to indicate that it is a bad idea to have
the visual display/analysis on the same server that is performing the
collection.  I was wondering if anyone has any suggestions on how to
implement this seperation.   That is, to have one server that is
running the "collectd", and to have a second server that is
responsible for display and analysis.

The second server would pull data from the collectd server every so
often (say every 6 hours, or every day, etc).  It would do web display
of stats, and do other analysis of the gathered data.  Appreciate any
suggestions on how to do this efficiently?

thx for any help, Doug
