For some reason, no one yet has mentioned the SAS WebHound product, which at

familiar with the product, but you might want to look into it. It might be

Subject: Real Time Web Reports with SAS?
we currently have a Realtime Reporting tool that was written in house by a
contractor, mainly in korn shell.
Unfortunatly it is hardly documented and to make things worse it is breaking
I am new to SAS and I am currently trying to build a business case to
replace the existing (but broken) implementation with something new.
I have been told by my manager that the preference would be an "off the
shelve" product that can be customized to our needs, though the senior SAS
Engineer here isn't aware of any such tool.
The biggest issue with the website demand is that it has to be near real

Does anybody have some idea / hints / leads / links?
