Curious what you mean by "not complete"?

If you are interested in collecting/graphing your own metrics, in the
past, folks used a tool called gmetric which injects metrics to gmond
(usually via cronjob).  In the next version of Ganglia, it will be
trivially easy to write a Python or C module which will let you
collect any metric you can specify in those languages and these will
appear to have been natively collected by gmond.

Hope this helps.
