I've only briefly checked the webpage and munin looks overwhelming.

I agree with this notion.
Also my strategy would be to keep the tools orthogonal to what Kolab Server 
comes with or find a very good one. I do not know enough knowledge 
to compare munin to all the other solutions to similiar problems I have seen.

I would maintain that Kolab Server is already pretty "pluggable" due to its 
Unix philosophy. Of course I am still looking forward to your proposal. :)
