If you use/like MRTG, check out RRDtool. It is basically the
time-series graphing and data storage/management component of
MRTG, broken out and `done right'.

`done right' means that RRDtool is magnitudes faster than MRTG
                                   and extremely configurable.

RRD is the Acronym for Round Robin Database Tool. RRDtool is a
system to store and display time-series data (i.e. network
bandwidth, machine-room temperature, server load average).

RRDtool stores the data in a very compact way that will not expand
over time, and it can produce useful graphs based on this data.

RRDtool can be used either via simple wrapper scripts (from shell
or Perl) or via frontends that poll network devices and put a
friendly user interface on it.

RRDtool should run on most reasonable unices (it has even been
observed to compile on NT). Feedback/experiences to tobi at caida.org.

RRDtool comes with a GNU license. Check:


RRDtool development was in part sponsored by CAIDA, the
Cooperative Association for Internet Data Analysis (www.caida.org)
in San Diego, CA
