If you want something like MRTG, but using RRD databases, I would
Cricket - designed from ground-up to offer MRTG-like functionality
but more efficiently and in a kind of generalized design.
or MRTG - the new version which uses RRD files for data storage.
RRD is more of a low-level tool for building applications like MRTG
on top of.
Even if you've got a good reason for wanting to invent your own
tools, you might want to look at Cricket for how it sets up the RRD/RRA
databases, as the answer to the immediate question you asked. The
basic concept is that you put multiple RRAs with different time frames
and possibly different consolidation options (AVERAGE/MAX) into the
single RRD file.
