How about OpenWRT and Collectd on DO droplet?

Hi all I’m sure there is a simpler way, through my DO droplet to do what I’m doing-so hopefully some bright person can help! I currently have a few OpenWRT nodes, talking back to a master OpenWRT router-both run the Collectd package, and combined with the luci-app-statistics package, I have a central repository for monitoring ping, server load etc. As its bulit in Luci, the main GUI for OpenWRT, its very simple to set up.

Is there a way to use my DO droplet (running Debian) to act as the central repositry-and combined with the public facing interface, be accessible to others to see the graphs? As running a fully fledged router, only to get the stats from collectd, seems overkill. I suspect you can run colledtd/RRDtool/some form of webserver to do all of this, I just need some pointers :-)

Cheers cabs
