I wonder is it possible to run ganglias gmetad and ganglia-monitor not demonized, under my own user (me, sudo) on debian? Because while gmond.conf contains something like demonize option I see no such in gmetad.conf...

Looking at man gmetad, you'll probably find

-d, --debug=INT
Debug level. If greater than zero, daemon will stay in foreground. (default='0')

so using commandline argument, e.g. gmetad -d 1, should do the trick.
