It seems to me that you're trying to fit rrdtool to a purpose that it wasn't really meant for. IMHO, you're going to be *much* better off storing this information in a normal database and using a graphing tool (such a flot) to graph it. I've done this exact thing and don't see RRDTool as a particularly valid solution to the problem at hand.
