Graph Everything

Technical level


At Plivo, its all about graphing data. If its in text and numbers, it needs to be on a graph. This talk would focus on collecting data, analyzing it and finally putting it on swanky graphs!

I would talk about how easy it is to extract data, measure it and using a graphing library to create awesome graphs using graphite.


The chaos phase!

This is the first phase of data coming out of tools like iostat, procfile and disk monitoring tools. All this data is received by a daemon who is constantly listening in.

We have normalized data

Now that data has reached our daemon, we process it and send it over to RRDtool which is a high performance data logging and graphing system for time series data.

Graph it

Once we have the data, we use rickshaw to graph it.
