I had that thought with one of my pages. I take the middle road. Have the script check the age of the HTML file, and if it's more than X minutes old, recreate it from the log files, otherwise just show it. It saves CPU and time when many people are viewing the page at the same time, but still gives you almost current data.

    Kinda depends on how many users and how often they look. In my case I had fewer than ten users, but some looked every few minutes. At the end of the project, the page was set to do automatic refreshing because we had one user (these were project administrators) checking the logs every few seconds. With the refresh he was convinced it was "real time" :-)
