Last week we finally got datanommer working in our production environment. Originally ianweller's idea, it is a consumer that sits listening to the fedmsg bus and logs every event to a postgresql database.
It's nice to have in place now. With the data we can make more confident statements about what's happening on the bus... we can record a series of events from our production environment... play those back in staging for testing scenarios... and most importantly, we can make pretty graphs.
I made the following with the output of the datanommer-dump command and these scripts:
You can see the ups and downs of the day/night cycle and you can see activity dip on the weekend, too. Neat!
