Am I missing any alternatives than these 3? I've played with NRG and
Cacti, but would rather use something with MRTG since it's much better

I use routers2.cgi because it has a very nice, browsable interface to
find things.

I use rrd_mrtg.cgi because it doesn't require ? in the url, so it works
well with Big Brother, but navigation is a pain.

I used 14all.cgi to learn a lot of perl tricks, particularly with the
mrtg_lib.pm module, which hasn't always been as documented as currently,
so seeing a great example of it in use in 14all.cgi was a big help to my
own mrtg extensions.
