What you are asking requires so much more information than you have provided to 
actually give you an answer I doubt you will get one.  This is NOT a simple task 
but rather quite complicated.  Sounds like you need something written in Twisted 
that dispatches background processes and handles the callbacks from those 
processes.  Twisted Web could then update the HTML pages that users are watching 
by refreshing them periodically.
