Marlowe APM Visualization Tool

This is a Sinatra app used to present page event data in different charts using D3. It's meant to be a simple platform for exploring Application Performance Management (APM) data with experimental visualizations and animations. I welcome contributions.

Requirements

  1. Ruby 1.9.3
  2. Smattering of ruby gems, including Sinatra, Rack

Running the Tool

  1. git clone https://github.com/newrelic/marlowe.git
  2. bundle install
  3. rackup

Adding your own dataset

Just add json files to the data directory using the following format:

 [
 [ "timestamp", "transaction", "frontend", "backend"],
 [1368817694170, "Controller/applications/show", 2599.0, 1067.0],
 [1368817694231, "Controller/public_access/charts/show", 277.0, 166.0],
 [1368817694240, "Controller/applications/index", 1517.0, 983.0],
 [1368817694260, "Controller/traced_errors/index", 1188.0, 725.0],
 ....

The columns can be in any order, but must include timestamp, transaction and one of frontend or backennd. They can include additional per-event dimensions which may be utilized in some experiments as alternatives to transaction.

For details on the format, refer to the readme.md file in the data directory.
