OpenTSDB dashboard

A dashboard for viewing OpenTSDB data

Please use Chrome while we work on performance :)

Developed and tested on OS X 10.6

Screenshot with some made-up data screenshot!

Get started

opentsdb-dashboard depends on hbase and asynchbase for opentsdb, and on node and npm for opentsdb-dashboard

Get opentsdb running

1 Get hbase-0.90.X - we've been using hbase-0.90.2

# From http://hbase.apache.org/book/quickstart.html. Pick a mirror at http://www.apache.org/dyn/closer.cgi/hbase/ and run:
curl -O http://link.to.mirror/.../hbase-0.90.X.tar.gz
tar -xzvf hbase-0.90.X.tar.gz

2 Get asyncbase

git clone https://github.com/stumbleupon/asynchbase.git
cd asynchbase
git checkout d1aff70c71d3
cd ..

3 Get and run OpenTSDB locally

# From http://opentsdb.net/getting-started.html
git clone git://github.com/stumbleupon/opentsdb.git
cd opentsdb
make || make MD5=md5sum
make staticroot
cp ../asynchbase/build/hbaseasync-1.0.jar ./third_party/hbase/hbaseasync-1.0.jar
env COMPRESSION=none HBASE_HOME=../hbase-0.90.X ./src/create_table.sh
./src/tsdb mkmetric http.hits sockets.simultaneous lolcats.viewed
./src/tsdb tsd --port=4242 --staticroot=build/staticroot --cachedir=/tmp/tsd

Get opentsdb-dashboard running

1 Download and install node.js from http://nodejs.org/

curl http://npmjs.org/install.sh | sh

3 Get opentsdb-dashboard:

git clone https://github.com/clover/opentsdb-dashboard.git
cd opentsdb-dashboard

node run/fakeProducer.js
