What do you mean by "monitoring" ?

Is it a question of providing the user with some feedback, like a progress bar ?

If so, then one of the easier ways would be to write your own java applet, downloaded and

run by the browser in your upload form, to do the upload and display some progress bar to

the user.
You may want to search for something already available to do it though, because writing it

from scratch is not really trivial.
Personally, I would only do that if it was /really/ worth the effort. Like if many users 
get impatient and break off the upload before it finishes.  Or of course if the marketing

guys insist on it, for the look.  But then tell them the cost.
