Welcome to IWETHEY!

New How do you want to assemble them?
Google graphs are reasonably powerful, though obviously aimed at web pages.

There's a powerful graphing library in rrdtool; ISTR it's also available as a separate library. The benefit of using this is that it's highly scriptable. Munin does this.

Q:Is it proper to eat cheeseburgers with your fingers?
A:No, the fingers should be eaten separately.
New Scripted if possible
Graphical interactive development of the page would be nice, but not required.
Ongoing outputs, processed on Centos Linux, that produce emails reports, that is the final goal.
New rrdt looks cool, but not for me.
It is targetted to time series data and doesn't do the charts I want.

Simpler charts. Pie charts. Bar graphs. Think charts for marketing executives who will review their data, as opposed to charts for techies to understand systems activity.
New It its simple you want
openoffice or powerpoint will do.

more complex, openoffice or excel will do.

Want to slice and dice your data, add regional info...try Tableau.

Think pivot tables on steroids. We used this to replace cognos.
Sure, understanding today's complex world of the future is a little like having bees live in your head. But...there they are.
New Well
I want to have a method of creating MS-DOC files that contain many reports, graphs, and bits of text. I'd prefer to run it on Linux. The data for the graphs will come via connection to Oracle.

So basically I want to script the pulling of the data, the creation of the graphs, the annotations and additional text, and create a final file that MS-Word can painlessly read.

But after seeing Tableau, I want that. How much does it cost, and can it do the thing I want as well as all it's other magic. I'm waiting for them to get back to me on the price, they don't have the server price on the web.
