There are too many to mention, you can go to sites like freshmeat appwatch or linuxapps and just do a search for graph.  You'll have to go through them and see which would best fit your needs.
Wish you luck and have a great day.

I use gnuplot. It's already in redhat. It's not to hard to learn and it outputs to png or gif. I have shell script running that makes graphs every hour and outputs them to a gif.

Excel is actually a spreadsheet that creates graphs from data inputted into the spreadsheet.  Similar programs on Linux include Staroffice and Applixware--both are free.  If you do not need the functionality of a spreadsheet, though, I would highly recommend xmgr.  Unlike the two "Office" style megasuites, xmgr (http://www.go.dlr.de/fresh/linux/src/.warix/xmgr-4.1.2-ix86-pc-linux.tar.gz.html) is only a little over 1MB and is very easy to use.  Nonetheless, it is also very powerful--it can do logarithmic, linear, and exponential axis with one click.  It can also fit all common curves to a given set of data.  Xmgr is also great to print with: offering color coding of data points/curves and captions.
