Probably not -- my mistake. I've replaced mrtg with rrdtool long ago.
RRDtool is not something you can "just install", you'll need to write
scripts. You can probably find all/most scripts you need on the net,
but you'll most likely have to customize them. OTGH, it does all MRTG
can do, and much more.
Riding roughshod over some little used trifle like the English language is not a
big deal to an important technology innovator like Microsoft. They did just that
by naming a major project dot-Net (".Net"). Before that, a period followed by a
capital letter was used to mark a sentence boundary. --T. Gottfried, RISKS 21.91
