MRTG is a really nice package for graphing router traffic. Mrtg can also graph other information is available via SNMP or by running a program such as pure-mrtginfo. The author of this program uses it to graph CPU load, /var usage etc., and naturally the number of users connected to his FTP servers. See http://oss.oetiker.ch/mrtg/ for more information about MRTG.
