Generally, you don't need to. We commonly use a template graph and apply it to the appropriate subdevice. This gives you the graph (traffic, disk, whatever) in that group.

We commonly use groups as a way of sub-dividing device functions, or to limit who can see certain graphs. For example, if we have a customer connected to a switch, we don't give him permission to see all the switch port graphs - we setup a group that he is allowed to see and put his switch port graph in that group.

What I miss is how to group several graphs to a single view.

Do you mean multiple monitors into one graph, or multiple graphs into a view?

To put multiple monitors into one graph, you need to first goto either Custom Graphs or Template Graphs (custom if you only plan on using this graph once, template if you could apply it to other hosts), add a new graph, and put the monitors you will use into it.

To add multiple graphs (template or custom graphs) to a view, click the graph icon (either grayed out or orange), then click the 'edit' button at the bottom of the page. This will show you a list of graphs currently in this view (if any); there will be an 'add' link near the upper-right corner to add more graphs.
