I find using MRTG is easier than Cacti for _automation_ purposes.
It's configmaker script will generate a config file for a single
router.  I've written about 5 different versions of a small script
that's basically a customized config maker so the graphs get named
with customer names or the like.  The job can be fully automated
with a few hours of coding; run it out of Cron to rebuild your interface
list automatically and you'll never miss a customer turn up because
someone forgot to configure a graph.
