So the guys want to have a web page that shows them instantly what their
usage stats are?  How old do they expect the data to be, one day?  Whatever
that interval is, that's how often u should rotate the logs.

Over ur LAN of course.  U have ur web host and reporting servers right next
to each other and going into the same switch.

see above

~/log/apache can be a symlink over NFS to the reporting server.  That way
the logs go directly there and can be mulled over by a dedicated cpu.  Also
only one mount needed.  The user's real time stats page would be accessible
by a second apache running on the reporting server, not the main web host.

So something like:
mount -t nfs reporting:/logtree /logtree
ln -s ~/log/apache /logtree/user1/
