If you want to run multiple servers you'd put the plugin on each and aggregate at the client.

If you switched to a drone setup, you'd run the plugin on one server, aggregate there, and run a single client.

There are a number of plugins in the SVN which show how to tie into the packet chain, create commands, and create new server protocols.

I'd suggest implementing a filter command where you say what you want realtime per-packet info on. I might even implement something where it aggregates packets before trying to shove signal data over the client channel; if you go into a high-density high-speed area where there are hundreds or thousands of packets a second, trying to ram that all over the client protocol is probably going to go poorly.
