This is not what MRTG does, so right off the bat, you are
forcing a square peg into a round hole.

It's not obvious. It would take 30 second to put in a cronjob
to implement something like this. It's not hard.

What is MRTG? It's as much a 3rd party app as routers2 or
cacti or cricket or any other polling solution. RRDTool is
just a backend.
Have you even *tried* using RRDTool as the backend and
MRTG with interval set to 1? MRTG is not going to do 1
minute intervals, any time soon, if ever.
Hint: It does what you are asking for, sort of.
