Take a look at the Perl .pm module in the "contrib" directory, it would 
be a bit more efficient than forking traffic_line for every stat you 
want to retrieve. I've put a little example script that I put together 
for monitoring a TS server using the CloudKick services, it's available at

Also, remember that stats are only collected from the worker threads 
periodically, so it's probably pointless to collect stats more often 
than every 5 seconds or so.
