It's overkill and does a ton more than what you're asking for...but
have you looked at ipaudit? Or, more specifically, ipaudit-web? I
ended up installing apache/gnuplot/etc from ports but installed
ipaudit from source as the version in ports is *incredibly* outdated.

man to labour and live on. -- Thomas Jefferson, 1785
