RRDTool gives a lot of flexibility, and is a related project of mrtg.
Recently I got to use what is marketed as pivot :) In short, if you
could dump your data in a database or even in a flat file, you can
connect to it through a spreadsheet (open-office is fully compatible for
the perticular feature wih MS excell). The beauty of this technique is,
you can give any no of different dimentions (olap word, in short lets
say in case of time -> years, months, weeks, days, hours...), and
create a report, and it allows you to drill down, just as you like.
There is an application called crystal info that even alows you to
design & email these files (called cubes) to people. In version 7, this
tool was free.
In any case, as long as you dump your data in a DB, rest of the task can
be doen from a spreadsheet. I have used RRD & mrtg, and I find that
pivot (MS name to this sort of basic olap functionality) is exremely
powerfull. What's better, openoffice allows a similar feature, so you
can actually do this on linux.
