Hi Erik,

Thanks for the link.

Maybe I failed to mention in my original email that this script is just a 
front-end. All the data gathering on the back-end is being done by 
perl/awk/bash. The reason for this decoupling is that not everything that 
I'm collecting has SNMP interfaces. A second reason for the decoupling is 
that I gather stats every 5 minutes (and in some cases every 1 minute). 
However, I sometimes don't look at the graphs for months on end, which 
means that the graphs don't get generated unless asked for by the 
frontend (or if they are stale).

I'm scratching my itch by working on this script the way its best suited 
to me. You're scratching your itch the way it best fits your needs. To 
each, their own.
