Well, yes and no. There is the whole esper stuff that indeed is in
there, but is described even by the creator as a bit of black magic ;)
Another thing is that you can use for example curl to periodically query
values of the metrics gathered, and for example feed them to nagios, and
have it react to them changing.
In short - it is an infrastructure to gather metrics from a lot of
places, in various ways. And a web interface that allows you to make
pretty graphs of them. For anything more, there are proper pieces in it,
but you need to figure out yourself how to operate them and write
something that will plug into them.
