  • Server browser ... activity monitoring graphs?

    Since servers tend to be mostly idle with occasional bursts of activity, it would be useful for the Server Browser page to show a graph of activity below each server that counts how many players are logged on, and when. This would help players find each other to play together.

    MRTG - Multi-Router Traffic Grapher

    Perl script to read the number of players on a Quake server:

  • #2
    The tool that queries the game server for statistics is called qstat. The original site mentioned in the perl script does not work, but the project is still supported elsewhere.

    It supports monitoring of a huge number of game servers:
