Open Source Visualization and Dashboard Software


I am working on an open source Application Performance Monitoring (APM) software and looking for a visualization tool with dashboard capabilities. I came across Graphite which looks pretty good but wondering if there is anything better out there before I settle down with that tool. Here’s the list of features I am interested in:


  1. Open Source license
  2. API to submit real time data
  3. Web-based visualization interface
  4. Persistence – file or database


Dashboard Capabilities: Allow users to select a few metrics (CPU, Heap Usage, # of Active Users etc.) and place them on a single page for easier monitoring.

Any suggestions?


Graphite is great, we use it in conjunction with Statsd: check out for more info
