I was wondering if anybody out there has seen or has developed a plugin that will monitor the currently active users on a site.


For instance when you get to the main index page you would see a line similar to this:


Currently active users 236

There are currently 198 logged in users and 38 anonymous users on the web site.  The most users ever online was 500 on December 15, 2003 at 9:13 am


Perhaps a link could then be included as well that would allow a user to then go to a page and select individual user nicknames so that they could then go and view a online user profile…


If there exist a plugin such as this or someone has a start on code that would do this I would really appreciate getting a chance to download / look at the code so that I could implement it on my site.
