About WebOps Visualizations
Q: What is this?
A: This group is for sharing visualizations of web operations metrics. For the most part, this means graphs of systems and application metrics, from software like ganglia, cacti, hyperic, etc.
Q:Who gets to see this?
A: This is a semi-public group, so don't post anything you don't want others to see.
For now, it'll be for members-only to post and view. Ideally, I think it'd be great to share some of these things publicly.
Q: What's interesting to post here?
A: Spikes, dips, patterns. Things with colors. Shiny things. Donuts. Ponies.
Q: My company will fire me if I show our metrics!
A: Don't be dense, and post your pageview, revenue, or other super-secret stuff that you think would be sensitive. Your mileage may vary.
We're pretty transparent at Flickr with a lot of our metrics, but of course not everything. I find that it's just as interesting to see statistics for a single database, photo server, or webserver as it is to see the absolute total for the entire clusters.
Lovely, delicious data porn.
