    We are an ISP and we were using MRTG to provide graphs for our 
leased line customers, what we did is create a separate directory on our 
web server for each customer and create symbolic links to his files 
(html, png) and we require a username and password from him to view the 
As our no. of customers increased this method is no more efficient since 
MRTG graphs all the targets (which take a lot of cpu time and a lot of 
disc space) so we thought about using RRD, but the problem is how are we 
going to generate the html and pngs for our customers when they log in 
with there username/passowrd with something like 14all.cgi or its clones 
and at the same time denying others from accessing other graphs.
