Stand-alone Realtime Charts

January 17 Bullet_white By Andre Bullet_white Comments Comments

Scout is going all-in on realtime in 2014. As a first step, we're releasing a new open-source (free!) tool, Scout realtime:

The project is currently in beta, and we'd love your feedback on it.

Like top, but better

Ever wish top had some charts, so you didn't have to catch numbers flashing on and off your terminal? That's exactly what Scout realtime is. It's much easier to troubleshoot a server issue when you've got a few minutes of historical data on top processes, network traffic, etc.

Give it a try!

gem install scout_realtime
scout_realtime start

You'll get best results on Linux boxes with the /proc filesystem.

How it works

Scout realtime is a lightweight daemon that serves up a single, auto-updating web page. It's small enough that you can leave it running in the background and not worry about it.

Don't be shy with feedback or suggestions. The project link again:
