System load monitoring with nodejs+socket.io+flot

February 12, 2012 Leave a comment

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.

This past weekend I decided to work on a pet project – build a real-time app using node.js.

Modules used: socket.io, express, jade, sqlite3.
