Python module for ganglia 3.1.
This module uses squidclient to get statistics from a running squid proxy. It attempts to parse the output into key/value pairs, it will need to be updated if new metrics are added to squidclient. The metric names are based on those returned by the squid snmp module, new ones were created with similar names where there were values in the output that didn't map directly to existing snmp metrics.
It has been tested on squid 2.6 and 2.7, I believe it should work on 3.1 as well.
The user running gmond will need to have the rights to run "squidclient mgr:info". The python module may be run as a standalone script to see the metrics that generated when included into gmond.
