Thanks. I know about Homer (and am on the mailing list for it).
My impressions are that:
a) it's rather specifically SIP-message based, so it can tell me about
communications between Asterisk and my SIP clients / trunks, but it won't tell
me about anything (non-SIP) specific to Asterisk
b) it's not real-time - I'm not aware that it has any Dashboard-style display
which can tell me, second-by-second, how many calls are in progress, how long
the current longest call is, how many calls have been processed today, etc...
If I'm wrong, please point me at some docs which tell me how to use it for
what I want, but my idea about it is that it's more of an after-the-fact SIP
analysis tool, not a real-time "what is my Asterisk server doing *now* " tool.

Never automate fully anything that does not have a manual override capability.
Never design anything that cannot work under degraded conditions in emergency.
