I am using SAR to monitor system performance.  Can anyone recommend a way to graph the output in these reports to a web browser?

Why not just simply install "Big Brother" (download and demo):

Feel how it looks like:

Big brother is not free for commercial use, so be careful with this. See http://www.bb4.org/license.html for more.

Also, I believe that sar and sadc are better catered to generating performance statistics. I know that perfmeter can be used for this on Solaris, but I am not aware of a version for Linux

I agree.. SAR is much better with performance stats than Big Brother. Need something that I can use with a web server though, since my server is far far away.

It looks like RRDtool might be useful to you - it looks like this can be used to generate graphs from SAR data.

Also, have a look at http://www.big-bubbles.fluff.org/blogs/bubbles/archives/000242.html
