    Please take a look on http://www.cacti.net

    Cacti is a rrdtool frontend. Graphs are generated with rrdtool, data 
collecting is done by cacti (you dont need MRTG). There are SEVERAL 
graph templates ready for download and use on cacti forums.

    Building your own complicated graph templates with cacti is not 
easy. There are several steps to go, but i'm absolutely sure it's far 
easier than building the same graphs in rrdtool directly.

    Im using cacti to monitor medium networks with 100-200 routers and 
it's going fantastic great !!! RRDTool advantages with a GREAT web 
interface for configuring and visualizing graphs !
