rrdmon likely does what you're asking for. It was written by Gilles
Lamiral, doesn't use MRTG, but does use Tobi's rrdtool:


    rrdmon - generate rrd bases from a remote mon server

    RRDMON is a tool to graph the service statuses reported by MON, using
    RRDTOOL. rrdmon collects the data by the network, creates or updates the
    rrd bases and generates dynamic, good and meaningful graphical web
