This is possible, if you use the routers2 frontend.

In this case, you should give the extra directive

routers.cgi*GraphStyle[targetname]: stack

which will plot the user and system values as a stacked area graph.

A better way, though, would be to define two separate targets (one for user,
one for system) and then define a userdefined stacked graph over the top in
routers2.  You can then have a 'total' line as well, and all the resulting

For an examlpe of this, you can see the routers2 demo on
www.steveshipway.org/software where a graph shows CPU as a stack of
user/system/wait on a UNIX system.

(Since its my frontend software, I am of course biased, though)
