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.


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.
