Cloud Analytics: first look

Since I joined Joyent late last year, I’ve been working with Bryan Cantrill, Dave Pacheco and Robert Mustacchi on the next generation of performance visualizations, called “Cloud Analytics”. I gave some previews (with software then <12 hours old!) at LISA10. If you weren't able to attend, video from that talk is available here: and slides here:

You’ve got another chance to see what we’re up to this Wednesday, January 19th, via a live video stream from Joyent’s offices in San Francisco. We’ve made great progress in the last couple of months, and look forward to giving some early demos. Sign up here:

    Thanks Brendan. I watched the recorded ustream. Looks pretty awesome. We’re a solaris shop and I can definitely see tremendous value in this tool. One question though:

    During the presentation someone asked the if the heatmap was created using JavaScript. Bryan indicated it wasn’t which sort of shocked me. Could you briefly outline the technologies involved in creating it this tool? I expected node+javascript+websockets to be involved :)
