how to display multiple independent objects on a web page

I am designing a web page and need some advice.  I am using visual studio 2013 and C#.  I need to display data from a web service using json and web api which is no problem.  One of the things exposed in the web api is a number of events for a user, which I handle without problem using javascript for one user.

The new challenge is to display the events for several users.  I'm not sure what direction to take to do this.  I hope the question is clear enough to describe my situation.  Sort of like having multiple frames, one for each user (best way to describe the end result).

What kind of interdepency exists between these objects/events and users.

Is it parent-child , then tree/substree/node will work.
(e.g. multiple events for each user can laid out as user/event structure/tree
Is it predecessor /successor type dependency, you would possibly use gantt chart

Is there a any connection/relationship between single event and more than one user ?
then may be you look at graphdb such as neo4j

thanks for the reply.  a user has a number of events attached to it: login, logout, connect a call, last login time, etc.  My aim is to have a list of users and be able to view an indicator when an event for that user has fired.  I just don't know how to structure event handling for more than one user ...

currently I am using long polling to wait for events for a single user.

From the description , looks like you are building user status  analytic page.
So i think datagrid layout could work.

One row per user. Other columns could be his status progession. This will be something like switchboard. Blinking icon could show status change.

You may have icon for login, Logout, Call connect,etc..
