Hi Maarten,

The way I use it for graphing in my PHP projects (which admittedly  
might not be the best method) is to create a PHP function that calls  
a shell_exec() to rrdtool graph. The arguments to rrdtool graph are  
passed as arguments in the function, which allows a degree of  

I hope this helps. Let me know if you would like to see the function  
I wrote (which is slowly evolving into a PHP class) and I can email  
you offline from the list.

Best regards,
- Rob Newman
