In my day job, my own experience has been that
real-time plotting is useful when you know exactly
what you are looking for and you only need to see a
limited number of parameters.  The rest of the time,
recording the data and plotting after the fact works
out to be better.

That said, it *would* be a very cool thing to be able
to do.
