rrdtool accepts strings in UTF-8 encoding, so you can simply use
unicode in your GPRINT, LINE, AREA, and STACK directives.  You may
also have to change the font to one containing the appropriate glyphs.
 The default font DejaVuSansMono-Roman.ttf contains glyphs for most
western European languages.  You'll need another font for Asian
languages, Arabic, Russian, etc.
