Well I just got into MRTG and think it's really cool.  I have an index 
page with a bunch of  graphs monitoring my servers at home.  Just as I 
got it all setup I ran across somethings about rrdtool.  Is this a 
replacement for MRTG?  Should I be using it instead?  I figured out 
it's a way to record data to a database, but then getting the data out 
of it and making graphs with it seems really difficult.

What is the consensus? I think I'd like to use rrdtool in the long 
run.. it seems better, and able to do more.  But I don't want to spend 
hours and hours setting up graphs.  MRTG is easy... is there a 
compromise here?
