It is possible to create a shell script to be called by 'cron' in regular intervals creating output in your local web root if you have a web server running. Then you can open the output page in a web browser. When used on a public web server, you can monitor the system from remote locations.
The most simple version of a script for this:
echo "<html><head></head><body><pre>" > $OUTPUT
ps >> $OUTPUT
echo "</pre></body></html>" >> $OUTPUT
Hope this helps,
