How to create a web page that monitors an application

I have several vb applications that grab incoming messages (medical), breaks them apart and saves them to the database. I would like the capability to have a web page that can somehow "see" what these parsers are doing (are they working, are they locked up, have they encountered an error, etc).

Is there a way that this can be accomplished? Do the parser applications have to be written in such a way as to provide this information (how is this done) for an external monitoring program?  

Just not sure how to go about doing this.

Thanks

Yes the applications will need to log their activity and then the web page can be used to present these logs to the user. The exact approach can vary depending on applications and your architecture but store these logs in a DB would make more sense in my opinion.

I guess I was thinking of something more "live" than basically a log reader. Is there an architecture that allows you to "hook" into the running application? Perhaps even a way to design the application so it can even be controlled from a web page? Not sure how this works or if it can be done.
