it's designed to take 2 numbers as input and log them, and graph them.
the numbers can come from anywhere, mrtg doesn't care. MRTG has built in
support SNMP though which makes it easiest to integrate with routers, switches
and other network equipment.

it won't analyze logs.

you can see a sample of what can be collected on my mrtg howto site:
