The typical solution is to store stats on everything you can think of
with munin, cacti, ganglia, or similar systems.
I know with ganglia at least, in addition to all the many details it
already tracks on a system and the many plugins already available for
it, you can write your own plugins or simple agents, so you can keep
stats on anything you can code around.
Munin's probably the easiest to try out, though.
