When I ended with the same ugly labels (eg max maximum?! gag!)
I eventually decided I was trying to do too much in one graph.

My solution is to graph the data as three separate web pages.

For example, I have (hrumph, MRTG) graphs with the following

 Proxy1.UW-Mad Best Response Times 
 Proxy1.UW-Mad Average Response Times 
 Proxy1.UW-Mad Worst Response Times
