Are you aware of the osg::Stats data structure and support built into
osgViewer?  The StatsHandler.cpp that provides the on-screen stats
enables stats collection and then gets the stats from the osg::Stats
objects.  Various parts of the OSG check for the osg::Stats objects
and then fill in the details when required.  The osg::Stats objects
are designed to queried by users.  Just have a look at how
src/osgViewer/StatsHandler.cpp sets things up.
