Sinister plots

I have been monitoring a message system for a while. I have 1000 data samples, each sample has a timestamp and a message count at that point in time. The count is ever-increasing. Can you recommend a tool to produce an interesting, pretty graph that shows activity over time? I'm familiar with gnuplot but don't like the output or the user interface much.

RRDTool

Sounds like you could use RRDtool

Re: RRDTool

I've used rrdtool in the past and it does fit the data but I found it hard to figure out the right parameters to use to initialize the thing. Do I really have to decide so much up front? I hope there is something that needs less coaxing out of the gate.

Re: RRDTool

Munin is a pretty good rrdtool frontend that takes a lot of the setup weight off your shoulders. In addition to that, it has a nice API for data collection. Might be worth a look.
