FnordMetric

FnordMetric is a highly configurable (and pretty fast) realtime app/event tracking thing based on ruby eventmachine and redis. You define your own plotting and counting functions as ruby blocks! See it in action! (RailsCasts)

Documentation: fnordmetric.io

Build status - Travis-ci

Getting Started

FnordMetric is based on ruby eventmachine and needs to run in a seperate ruby process. The preferred way to start it is to create a ruby file (where you put your DSL statements) and execute it (more about that in the documentation)

Save this to my_fnordmetric.rb

require "fnordmetric"

FnordMetric.namespace :myapp do

  # render a timeseries graph
  widget 'Sales',
    :title => "Sales per Minute",
    :gauges => [:sales_per_minute],
    :type => :timeline,
    :width => 100,
    :autoupdate => 1

end

FnordMetric.standalone

In this case we created one timeseries chart on the dashboard "Sales" that will display the number of sales_per_minute and auto-refresh every second.

You should now be able to start the dashboard on http://localhost:4242/ (default) by running:

$ ruby my_fnordmetric.rb

Now we can start sending data to FnordMetric. The canonical way to submit data is the HTTP API. This will report a single sale:

curl -X POST -d '{ "_type": "_incr", "value": 1, "gauge": "sales_per_minute" }' http://localhost:4242/events

There are various other ways to submit events to FnordMetric (more information in the documentation).

HTML5 API

FnordMetric offers a HTML5 / JavaScript API (called FnordMetric UI) that allows you to plug real-time data and charts into any website without having to write code. This is achieved by including a JavaScript library and using data-* attributes on html elements to declare the widgets.

<link href='http://localhost:4242/fnordmetric-ui.css' type='text/css' rel='stylesheet' />
<script src='http://localhost:4242/fnordmetric-ui.js' type='text/javascript'></script>

<span
  data-fnordmetric="counter"
  data-gauge="sales_per_minute"
  data-autoupdate="1"
  data-unit=""
  >0</span>

<script>
  FnordMetric.setup({
    "address":   "localhost:4242",
    "namespace": "myapp"
  });
</script>

Installation

gem install fnordmetric
