I personally like rrdcgi . It does a lot of stuff for you, but allows
you to built the graph exactly as you want it.

You still have to tell it how you want it to make the graph.


It limited¤ but if you can make the graph you want from command line
and just want a web interface to change things like time period and
interface, it might be the tool for you.

If instead you don't want to have to deal with how graphs are made,
then maybe you want a full blown web app that just happens to use rrd
under the hood. For example nagios pnp, cacti, cricket, or mrtg +
14all.cgi, opennms, groundworks... Hm I'm rambling.

¤ I was unable to build a graph with 100s of ds. I did not spend
anytime trying to figure out if it was an rrd issue, an rrdcgi issue,
or an issue with anyone of the various libraries that rrd uses. Ymmv
