System load monitoring with nodejs+socket.io+flot
I am a big fan of node.js, socket.io and a long list of other node modules, as you might have known through my News Board app. While working on a html5 charting project a few years back I discovered flot which I also became a fan of. I started a few weeks ago working on a real-time charting app with the technologies I just mentioned, by plotting some randomly generated numbers (streamed through socket.io) with flot. Today I just changed the app by using real data – system average loads. Check out the project at github if you are interested in.
My next goal is to use Redis to handle the data captured.[update] A new branch using Redis as data store has also been implemented.
