I recently moved from pure MRTG to RRD integrated MRTG with 14all on
Windows 2003 with IIS6 and it works great. I had debated about doing
this for some time as we outgrew MRTG with 400+ devices but had not
seen much info on accomplishing it.
It was actually pretty easy. I started with the info here:

for platform and versions. I have a quick write up here:

I have also experimented with the 1 minute patches found here:
http://www.loplop.net/projects/1minMRTG/ with some success. My system
doesn't have enough power to manage many devices at one minute
intervals so more testing will have to wait.
More options are Steve Shipway's Routers2
