We used Chart Director for several years, and were very happy with it.  While we used it for graphing, it is much more versatile if you need more.  We had a technical issue early on, and the support was great.
While this is not a graphing library, having the service worked out well for us.  We were able to use it for more than we originally intended.

Take a look at ChartDirector at http://www.advsofteng.com/.  We've been 
using their Python version for a while and have found it to be easy to 
work with, has lots of flexibility in terms of graph layout and 
decoration, and it draws impressive graphs pretty quickly.

It's a commercial library - depending on what you're doing it might not

be appropriate or might get expensive, but for a centralized webapp it's 
not bad.
