To analyze performance via SNMP, use a script like RRDUtil
http://www.tnpi.biz/cgi-bin/rrdutil.cgi
or roll your own.

mod_status is very straightforward. Some distros include it (RedHat?),
you might already have stats at /server-status.

After some tinkering, I think you will find that Apache offers more
