I assume the reason systemmonitor doesn't already do this is for performance/memory reasons. However, it would be nice to have an option to enable this, because quite regularly I find myself trying to check something that just happened to my system in the History graph, only for it to not have been recorded because I hadn't opened the History tab since starting the app.

Seems reasonable.

Add a page option to allow preloading a page

For certain pages, it is useful to be able to load the page as soon as
possible so graphs can already start collecting data. This adds an
option to the page configuration that specifies when to load a page -
either on demand on during startup. By default pages will still be
loaded on demand.
