I apologize for not considering that perl was required; that would be a major space concern.  Would
the developers be interested in a more local oriented graphing program, written in C, only requiring
space for the program itself, current graph pictures and a simple log file of recorded usages (5
minute averages, ideally)?  I don't have a specific program in mind, but if one were found or
written, would it be considered for use?

Using another machine to run MRTG is an excellent idea that I employed for some time, but certain
issues keep it from being economical at this time.

Thanks for the response guys.
