It's probably possible to capture, but it'd be clumsy at best. 

If they are interested in seeing performance data,  a performance tool
is a better fit.   NetView is best at network fault management. 

There's a wildly popular freeware package that creates web based graph
reports and collects performance date.  You may wish to check into a
program called MRTG.
