Picky Statistics Interface Tweet
This post is about a fun statistics interface I’ve been working on, including a video. Download 4.5.2+, and enter this in your preferred shell.
picky stats path/to/log/file.log
This will tell you this:
Logfile path/to/log/file.log found. Clam, Picky's friend, is looking at Picky's logfile path/to/log/file.log and showing results on port 4567. == Sinatra/1.3.2 has taken the stage on 4567 for development with backup from Thin >> Thin web server (v1.3.1 codename Triple Espresso) >> Maximum connections set to 1024 >> Listening on 0.0.0.0:4567, CTRL+C to stop
Then, in another shell, enter
(on OSX) and have fun!.
See this short video (it’s best to full-screen it):
The interface uses this great JS lib: http://square.github.com/crossfilter/. Check it out :)
Interface Usage Ideas
Slice and dice your data:
- What queries are slowest?
- Are they suspiciously slow in the morning?
- How many return more than 1 allocation?
- Does more allocations also mean slower? Or more results?
Etc.Next And faster still
