Audience level:
Lecture Room E4


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!


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.
