If you are storing your data in .rrd files, this is not possible. This
is due to the way RRDTool averages the data points over time. The graphs
are generated on the fly from the .rrd files, and the data points that
make up the graphs that you see today are not going to be around a week
from now.
However, the routers2.cgi front-end has been developed with some 'graph
archiving' code that enables you to archive specific graphs. So, if you
look into this further, it may allow you to archive your daily graphs
and be able to refer back to them at a future date. While I use
routers2.cgi (http://www.steveshipway.org/), I have not tested nor used
the archive feature, so I can't offer you much more detail.
