Depends on how you define each. What exactly is a hit - viewing a page, viewing
a document, exercising the SOAP/WebDav/Web Folders interfaces, ?? Most of this
can be gathered from either the usage reporting in WSS or the IIS logs.

There really isn't such a thing as "number of logged on users" as SharePoint is
stateless. From the server's point of view there's no real difference between
the time lag for a user to read a page and make the next click, a user going
home for the night, or a user going on a 3 week vacation.

No, there is no way to have a list  of logged in users, because there is no
"logged in" state being tracked to report on. SharePoint is stateless,
authentication info is sent with each request (usually behind the scenes) to
allow for scalable load balancing in farm configurations. SharePoint is also a
web-based application, so there is no persistant connection between the client
and server  to be interrogated like a legacy client-server app.

You need to determine what you mean by a hit, but for most cases you would
enable WSS usage reporting from the administration interface or if you want
isn't possible with that, write some custom code to process the IIS logs.

Yes, i think the best that you can do is to create a report or part that shows
who or how many have accessed a site  within a particual time frame and now you
need to detemine what constitutes a "site" for the report as well as what
