Hi there,

This is in response to:

I don't really know about the capabilities of rrdexplorer, but I have a 
perl CGI script that I use which gives some sort of dynamic viewing 

You can see the output at:

So, the CGI is based off of a script by Jan "Yenya" Kasprzak 
<kas at fi.muni.cz> mrtg-rrd.cgi. I have modified it heavily as I didn't like 
its limitations and tight coupling with MRTG.

As a result of the modifications, these are some of the added benefits 
(in addition to what mrtg-rrd.cgi provides):

* you are able to do multiple RRDs on one graph
* limited dynamic exploring capability
* total control over graph functions (e.g., liberal use is made of AREA, 
STACK, etc...

As a down side:

* you really need to know some of the graphing functions as they are coded 
directly in the .cfg file

I realize that my source code and the associated configuration files may
not be ready for public consumption. However, if enough people like it,
then, of course, I'm willing to answer questions/queries and put up the
source in a publicly accessible CVS repo. For now the source is available
in one big blob at:
