Do you use "Logformat: rrdtool" ?

That will save you from generating graphs each run.
Instead you'll need something like my14all.cgi to generate those graphs on 
demand when someone want to have a look at them.

As MRTG use a lot of forks, but most of the time is waiting for SNMP 
response, load average is usually not a problem.  Check for CPU usage 
instead (vmstat).
