You don't have to send the raw data, you can just send the graph points, perhaps in condensed format.

So you'd need to calculate the graph points on server side; at this point you'll see that you would be better off just doing pretty much all the drawing on server side.

I don't think so, graph data generation is different from graph drawing. The latter requires some drawing/plotting library or program on the server side. I find it easier and lighter weight to just change the graph points into json, send it to the client, have javascript render it, and be done with it.
