actually you just do "sudo apt-get install munin munin-node" and point your 
webbrowser to and are done for a single host. for 
multiple hosts its editing one file on the node to allow the server to access 
it, and tell the server to do so (by editing another simple file).

Configuring extra plugins is a bit more work, though many services munin can 
monitor are autoconfigured. (And configuring a plugin involves creating a 
link to activate the plugin and then putting some configuration in 
into /etc/munin/plugin-conf.d/ - usually stuff like the disk to monitor by 
the smart plugin or the credentials to access databases or such.)

Really not a big deal.

You missed what Luk pointed out, but I felt like clarifying the above as 
well :-)
