[mrtg] Simple graphing tool

The Routers2 script can generate only the graph images, if that's what you want, or just the naked graph page (without the menus framework).

If you use the parameter '&page=image' then it will generate just the graph image, so this can be used in a IMG url.  You can specify the size of the image from full-page down to (with the latest beta) thumbnail graph.

this generates a large daily graph
this generates a thumbnail yearly graph (v2.22beta1 or later)

You can obtain the correct URL parameters from the full web interface (click on the 'bookmark' button), or the documentation tells you how to construct them.

I see that MRTG no longer generates the graphs and that you need another app to read from RRD and make the graphs.

I see Steve's Router2 script but it looks a little too much.

Can anyone suggest a script that can generate only the graphs as simple images and do it only when invoked?

We already have a web-page frame work and I fear too much change would spook some of my higher-ups.
