In a fit of enthusiam over the last couple of evenings I have
encorporated MRTG statistics into DXSpider. The result is now available
in cvs (you will need to do a cvz -z3 update -d to get it all). 

This is currently available only for unix/linux systems.

You will also need to install a copy of MRTG
(http://people.ee.ethz.ch/~oetiker/webtools/mrtg) either from the
website or using the package that seems to come with most distros these

When you have cvsed copy the image files from MRTG (probably in
/var/www/html/mrtg) to /spider/html/mrtg.

To get everything, then put the following into your dxspider crontab:-

00,05,10,15,20,25,30,35,40,45,50,55 * * * * run_cmd('mrtg all')

You can select what you want by using some or all of the keywords in
this list: totalusers, totalspots, hfvhf, wwv, wcy

In time I shall include single graphs for each of the bands as well. 

You can see an example of the results by looking at:
