A weekend of neglecting my family produced a small ruby program which connects to your servers via SSH, grabs and parses data from Apaches access log and Ruby on Rails production log, and displays your traffic and statistics in real-time using a simple OpenGL interface (tested under Linux and Mac OS/X).

It's a bit hard to explain over text, so please have a look at http://www.fudgie.org/ for an example movie, and more information."
