Integrating 3rd party data sources/files

Hi All,

I'm interested in integrating 3rd party data sources. In particularly, OCS inventory information. OCS produces an XML containing hardware & software inventory.

I know about running scripts from Hyperic agent.

To keep it generic - I'd like to be able to pick up a named local file (using SIGAR?) and send it to a receiver on the HQ server.

What is the best way to accomplish this whilst comforming to Hyperic's architecture & design goals?

Ultimately, I think I'll run up a version of Sesame (RDF/triple store) to persist the "static" inventory data. I'm also thinking of storing network conversations (netstat) in RDF too - to build an application topology graph.

Can you see where I'm trying to go?
