In such cases, I use UDP-based data export.  The service which exports
the data doesn't really care if the data is received properly, but in
almost all cases, you can obtain the data you are interested in.
Great for debugging and to get a general picture.

Adding such functionality to any server software is typically
straightforward, and on the receiving end, you use a short Perl script
or something like that.
