As far as I know, using "normal" MRTG forces the computing of each PNG 
image you see in MRTG generated web pages. Any way you take this 
problem, computing so many images takes a *lot* of CPU time. In order to 
decrease the load, you must go through rrdtool: it's way faster, since 
it just logs the data - there are some scripts generating PNG graphs on 
the fly.

The way to integrate mrtg and rrdtools is written here :
