first ignore my subject line. I meant BarryN, where 
where N = (d+1) in 'd' (apparent) spatial dimensions. 
So, Barry3 means 3 metrics in d=2 (triangle) and 
Barry4 means 4 metrics in d=3 (tetrahedron).

So to get simpler I would need to start with Barry3. An
animated GIF which should fetch data from RRD and display it.
This being 2D. For future 3D plots again maybe an animated GIF 
will do. 

I need to think for awhile about how the final plots will look.

yeah, true.
