I'd use an RRDtool front-end that manipulates RRDTool automatically for
you. These front-ends are made to graph network devices and provide 4-hr,
day, week, month, and year graphs automatically, using RRDtool to do it.
That way all you need to do is supply SNMP info about your network gear.
I like NRG (http://nrg.hep.wisc.edu/); some like Cacti
