Detect who's currently viewing your site

Hello people. I’m in need of a system that can see who (so which ip’s) are currently viewing your site. It has to be real-time (update every 10 seconds or so) and it has to be fast because the site may have a few thousand visitors at the same time. I’ve thought of 3 possible solutions, but I don’t like either one of them, so if you know of another way, please post it below. 1) Make an ajax call every 30 seconds to the server. The server then logs this in a database. The ip’s that have responded less than 45 seconds ago, will then be seen as online visitors. Pros: it’s very accurate. Cons: when you have thousands of visitors on your site, it will probably overload the server (right?), so probably not the best idea. 2) When the page loads, log the ip of the visitor in the database. All the ip’s from the last 10 minutes will then be seen as online visitors. Pros: very lightweight for the server. Cons: inaccurate, and I need something that is accurate. 3) The same as number 2, but when a visitor closes the site, make an ajax call that marks the ip offline. Is this even possible? Then if an ip is still online after 1 hour, it’s marked offline because the ajax call may have failed. As you can see 3 solutions, but not very good one's. Any input is highly appreciated. Thanks!! How does Google do it? With Google Analytics you can see for how long visitors are on average on your website. How do they do that?
