== About Jarmon ==
 * Jarmon is a Javascript library designed to allow you to
quickly generate interactive DHTML charts from RRD data files -
entirely within the web browser - no server side components required.

 * Jarmon downloads multiple RRD files in parallel from one or more
servers, using asynchronous XHR requests, extracts and merges the data
and then plots the results using HTML5 canvas elements.

 * Jarmon includes a fully working dashboard application - a graphical
frontend to Collectd

 * Jarmon depends on the JavascriptRRD, Flot and jQuery libraries.
