MRTG doesn't make the graphs.  It tells rateup to do so.  As can you.

It will take some time to figure out what's happening.  If you want
to continue then I suggest you create a wrapper for rateup that logs
its command line parameters.  Let MRTG call this wrapper for a while
and try to mimic its behaviour.
