Hi Noam,

Right, xdmod is a standard LAMP stack webapp.  You can see some pictures of
the graphs in the web interface in a google image search here

It may also require a fairly beefy database backend, depending on how many
millions of jobs you want to process.

I'm not aware of command-line tools that produce pretty graphs suitable for
consumption by upper management :)
