Everything you mentioned (apache, graphs etc) is possible in Django, but 
I'm wondering whether Django might be too complex for this kind of 
application, as you may not need complex url mapping, sessions, 
templates and all that functionality.

If the only operation is to access the database and dump some data then 
maybe it is better to use WebOb and use sqlalchemy for accessing the 

But if you already familiar with Django (or are planning to use this 
project to learn it), then I would just go with that.
