Maybe, maybe not.

1) routers.cgi != 14all
2) I'm the do-it-yourself type of person so I don't know either program.

In my experience when you need to tweak an application to do exactly
what you want it to do, you spend at least as much time configuring
this application as you would spend on generating your own grapher script.

So, if routers.cgi knows how to display the data exactly as wished, go for
it.  If not, or if in doubt, at least consider learning RRDtool and roll
your own script.  This too will cost you time, at least the knowledge you
aquire is useful for more than just this problem.
