Depending from what do you need or mean with "monitoring" and in what details 
there are different solutions.

If you want to generate usage statistics about your websites - usually from 
log files - you may have to take a look at:

 - webalizer
 - awstats

(we run both in different environments/situations - each with maxmind GeoIP 
for geolocation of source hosts/users). Both tools generate (mostly static) 
HTML pages which could be served by a httpd to clients.

if user tracking is important for you 
 - Piwik 

may be the better choice.

To monitor the apache process, system and network ressources there are many 
solutions possible. A simple but helpful way is to activate the apache server-
status module.

We are using nagios for proactive ressource / availability monitoring in 
combination with cacti (RRDTool) to generate some graphs. If nagios is to 
difficult for you you may look at the zabbix monitoring system. 

And yes - X is not reuired for any of this solutions, but there are several 
third party client apps out for i.e. X, Android/iOS, M$ a.o..
