Throwing an RRD template your way doesn't make much sense until it has
been pinpointed what data you can get from the unit, what software you
use to retrieve it and stuff it into RRD files (*), and the potential
(re)format(ting) issues along that chain.

(*) Examples: MRTG and Cacti as "traffic" recording tools (data will be
collected in very regular intervals); Nagios, Naemon, Icinga, Shinken,
... with some "performance data backend" add-on (NDO/IDO, PNP4Nagios,
n2rrd, InGraph, ...) as dedicated monitoring solutions (frequency of
requests will increase when something is amiss); just take "snmpget"s
and "rrdtool update"s, roll a shell script, and put it into the crontab;
various commercial, SNMP-aware network management/monitoring tools, if
you happen to already have one; .......

... and note that the tool that creates the graph *to put onto your
webpage* could still be a bare "rrdtool graph", instead of whatever
mechanism is provided along with the "collector" solution.
