Read a little further down that page ...

"The advantage of whole thing is that the mrtg will become much faster.
Expect the runtime to drop to 20% of the previous value."

"The idea behind this is that it is more efficient to create graphs and
webpages on demand by using a cgi script."

Finally, _3_ CGI scripts are presented for your use:

1. routers2.cgi - http://www.steveshipway.org/software/ 

2. One4All aka 14all.cgi - http://my14all.sourceforge.net/

3. mrtg-rrd - http://www.fi.muni.cz/~kas/mrtg-rrd/

Your graphs suffer from legibility problems due to limitations inherent
in the current version of MTRG.

The solution to solve your problem, while providing the same
functionality, is there. You just have to make the choice.
