assuming you are only interested knowing how long it takes for your
httpd server to serve up a page i reckon you are using mod_header in
apache and pulling pertinet fields from that.  i do not know of any
programs that will do this for you, but it seems like a pretty simple
script that you can drop into your monitoring agent of choice. 


in prod environments i tend to rely on external vendors with
geographically distributed POPs to monitor response time to give me a
better view of how we are doing - keynote for example.
