Well,

I would do the following, lets assume some servers here :
Server1 - Your server
Server2 - Someone you want data from
Server3 - Another one you want data from

I would create a script which must be installed on every server you need
data from, call it generate.php for example. This script would pull out
all the data your would want to use on your site, format the the data
however youd like it, as a CSV file, MySQL queries or whatever.
Each generate script will write back to the file : batch.txt for example.
(Or it could spit out the results as you trigger the scrupt, but incase
there
are many servers you would encounter the 30second limit on PHP scripts).
For the case of argument we say that the generate.php script spits out
the results the way you want them.

What your server would need to do then would be the following :
You could use fopen to trigger each generate.php file like this from your
site :

--->
function fetchpage($page){
 $fd=fopen($page,"r");
 while ($line=fgets($fd,1000)) { $text.=$line; } fclose ($fd);
return $text;
}
$data2 = fetchpage('http://server2/generate.php');
$data3 = fetchpage('http://server3/generate.php');
--->

You now have all you need in $data and $data2, you would then
pull your own stats into $data1 and do whatever you like with this.
You could pump all the results into a new table for statistics, or
do it at once and present the result as a HTML.

You should also create a trigger or something for this script so that
it doesnt run on every pageload, maby once an hour or something.

I hope you got the the hang of it.
