This is not a Cisco question, it is a question about MRTG.  The home page for MRTG is https://oss.oetiker.ch/mrtg.  To answer your question, the text files already exist.  Go to the directory where the MRTG stuff is displayed on your web server.  For example if you go to http://webserver/mrtg, go to $DOCROOT/mrtg.  There are files ending in .log for each graph/interface.  The format of the file is documented here:  https://oss.oetiker.ch/mrtg/doc/mrtg-logfile.en.html.

MRTG is typically updated via a cron job.  It polls the device, appends the data to the .log file and then creates a new PNG file for display on the web server.  By default, the cron entry is kicked off every 5 minutes.  It also puts an entry in the index.html to reload the web page every 5 minutes.
