Whatever you do, it will need to be based around RRDtool, because MRTG
generates the graphs every 5 minutes whether someone looks at them or
not, whereas the CGi in RRDtool only generates the graphs when you look
at them.

Does it generate the graphs for EVERY access? Or does it just generate the
graphs a maximum of once per X minutes on access?

If it generates graphs for every access it won't do well when all the people
in your NOC have it on auto-refresh...

Yes indeed :) No, RRDTool's cgi is smart enough to only regenerate images when needed. It is configurable, so that if you want it to always generate a fresh graph, you can.
