Real Time Data Stream Visualization

Excerpt

A customer calls with a simple question, "is everyone down, or is it just us?" Your stomach turns. "Uhhh, I don't know, can I call you right back after I check a few things?!" Don't find yourself in this uncomfortable situation. We have the technology to watch our data in real time in ways that make the health of our systems immediately

Description

A customer calls with a simple question, “is everyone down, or is it just us?” Your stomach turns. “Uhhh, I don’t know, can I call you right back after I check a few things?!” Don’t find yourself in this uncomfortable situation. We have the technology to watch our data in real time in ways that make the health of our systems immediately
obvious.

Creating a real time display of application or network activity shouldn’t be limited to the likes of NASA, movie producers, or giant network operators. Regardless of your scale or skill, real time displays are within your reach. They look cool, and they will pay for themselves every time you answer a frantic support call.

This session will cover methods for real time data stream visualization including log visualizers, dashboards, and physical devices. Some discussion of application instrumentation and centralized logging may be covered depending on the experience level of the participants. Questions and discussion are encouraged. The possibilities are as wide open as the code.
