There's more than one way to do it with Nagios:

I'm using nagiostat myself, which churns out graphs like:

I just set it up yesterday so there's not much polling data yet. I like it 
with MRTG/cricket better, actually - you can see a few blank spots where 
checks got delayed due to other outages, and then there's no info to use. 
MRTG/cricket just runs off cron, which means it hardly misses a beat.
