Providing you only return integers, MRTG woudld be simple to setup for this.

Graphdefang as already was mentioned is pretty simple to although the config
is not too well ocumented if I remember right (been a while).

If you return floating points then you should look at rddtool (which is what
MRTG is moving to soon as well).
