I have created the following graph in Cacti:

I have created an aggregate of twenty graphs, this is great, it's stacked them on top of each other showing the total value with each contributing graph entry below.

All I want at the very bottom of the graph is a line with totals of the current, average and max values; but I'm pulling my hair out trying to make it happen? How can I do this?

You need to edit the graph template this graph uses (from the "Graph Templates" page)-

  1. remove the comments from legend that are already there that you don't want.
  2. add an entry with the following info
    • data source: none
    • color: your choice, useless
    • opacity: greyed out
    • graph item type: gprint
    • consolidation function: average
    • CDEF Function: total all data sources
    • Value: blank
    • Gprint type: normal
    • text format: total amount
    • insert hard return: checked

You can tweak some of those settings like the consolidation function (in fact, to get the min, max, and avg numbers you want you'll need to create a total of three of these, one with each of these selections), gprint type, text format, and insert hard return. You can also move it up or down on the legend in relation to whatever you haven't deleted from the first major step.
