  1. Graphing service

    A couple years ago we deployed Collectd to collect and graph system metrics. Lately I have been prototyping an install of Graphite (http://graphite.wikidot.com/) which is a more scalable datastore and real-time graphing system. It has features that could form the basis for a general purpose graphing service for systems, apps and services.

    • Source control as a UWIT service
