If the OP is looking for a looking glass, that's one thing.  If they're
looking for a NOC customer diagnostics tool, I'm not sure that a looking
glass is really the best approach, and perhaps authorization-controlled
CLI access would be a better option.

If you want a properly secured LG, you need to separate out web-ui
commands from back-end access to the data source, with good quality
params validation in between.  This is done in github.com/inex/birdseye,
but is specific to BIRD.
