This is something I've been working on in the background for a few weeks
and I'm ready to ask for collaborators now.
We now have an instance of Grafana and InfluxDB available to the Ubuntu
project for the community to use to better track metrics about its work.
It is available on the web at:
(there are currently two dashboards: a second one is for the *staging*
autopkgtest instance - "soon"™ to start learning about the production
I've written some initial collectors to grab some data to show everyone
what kinds of things can be done. Once there's more data being gathered
we can organise things into different dashboards in a way that makes
sense for your team.
Some things it might be useful to have
- Bug statistics for groups of packages / packagesets / those
subscribed to by a team
- Number of CC / TB / release / archive team bugs which are waiting
- Packages stalled in -proposed
- Size of devel-proposed
- Size / age of ISO images
- Maybe something about the health of the community?
Or I know some folks at Canonical have some of these things in internal
dashboards already, so maybe consider what can be moved over here.
The code is here:
and I'm keen to share access and review burden with—at least
initially—any Ubuntu Developer (~ubuntu-dev member) who wants to get
involved. Especially since I know I'm not the bestest Grafana wizard
around the place. 🙃
Let me know by private mail if you want to join the team, and also we
can use this thread to collect ideas.
Finally, thanks to Canonical IS for setting this all up for us to use,
and dealing patiently with me for the lengthy period where I didn't
really know what we wanted or what I was asking for/talking about. 😬💚
