The current viz. I have are all generated by a Munin server which every 5
minutes collect data points on the "munin node" and generates graph (PNG). So
as a client accessing the server, you only have to fetch a PNG, all the CPU
work for the graph is done on the server side.

It's indeed the JS vs non JS discussion where you basically want to put the
load on the client side instead of the server.

Please expand on the what would be required of me for this guinea pig
experiment? :)
