Yep, I remember that.  Used to use it all the time.

Real time costs lots of money.  Near-time doesn't.

There is a windows network grapher out there that 
monitors per second and updates the graph too.  I 
can't remember the name of it, but it can be set up to 
write the data out to a log file in a configurable 
timeframe (every minute up to about every 99 hours).
It is based on MRTG and works fairly well from what 
I remember.

It's a little finicky about the memory it uses (I think it 
had a memory leak), but the name of the application 
escapes me.  I'll go hunting for it, but I'm not sure 
it's still out in the wild.
