Plain MRTG, using RRD logformat, with routers2.cgi to graph the data from 
the .rrd files.  Be sure to add "SnmpEnableV3: yes", and to use the ifHC* 
OIDs (64-bit counters).  You'll also need to put :::::2 at the end of the 
Target[] line to enable the ifHC* counter checking in MRTG.

We're using this to graph CPU, RAM, Swap, and NIC data for the dom0 and 
each domU on our Xen box.
