Yes: http://mogwai.rz.uni-ulm.de/~rb1/mrtg/
(these are the logs of one switch)

The patch to mrtg is very small, it could go into mrtg (to be activated via
a config option - do you want me to modify the patch accordingly?). The
major part is the CGI. Not sure how to call it. I included an expanded
bottom line from the mrtg pages. How do you think about it?

I'm not sure wether to maintain this patch/CGI other than to keep it running
for me. That's why it's not a complete package (configure ...). It might be
of interest for the log-to-xml-to-rrd guy (log2rrd can do part of the job,
but it's very sloooooooow). And what about putting it into the contrib
section of mrtg?

rewrite - yes, sort of ... I like especially the rateup option syntax (and
parser ;-)
