[smokeping-users] RRD Command for generating Smokeping graphs via CLI

I need to write a script that generates the smokeping graphs for use in another front-end (i.e. without accessing the smokeping cgi directly). Would anyone have the relevant rrd command and parameters I should use or an easy way to find out what it is?

I've read the following threads:

https://lists.oetiker.ch/pipermail/smokeping-users/2011-November/004519.html - This is what I need; unfortunately there doesn't seem to be a conclusion to this thread.

https://lists.oetiker.ch/pipermail/smokeping-users/2007-August/002420.html - This mentions the use of 'displaymod=a' which I've tried and is close to what I want (I could use something like wget to get the graph). Unfortunately though it doesn't allow for any modification of the graph itself and I need to modify some minor things such as the graph title.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks & Regards,
