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?

I tend to disagree. If you search this site, you will notice tons of similar questions been answered here, with good recommendations - I must add! Besides, this question is associated with open-source, monitoring and apm that are all valid stackoverflow tags. –  helios Jun 24 '11 at 2:08
The tags may be appropriate, but the question isn't. I can create the tags automobile and mechanics and ask for referrals to a repair shop; that doesn't make the question on topic. Using open-source as a tag doesn't automatically mean it's on topic; the actual question should be as well. –  Ken White Jun 24 '11 at 3:51
