Machine System is a presentation of the activity within the Computer Club machine room. Live statistics are harvested every minute from machines within the room, aggregated in a MongoDB database, and then presented to the viewer using WebGL as a stylized solar system.
Rack shelving units are displayed in red, and their size corresponds to the number of servers (physical and virtual) running on them. Physical servers are displayed in green, virtual servers in blue. For servers, orbital radius corresponds to memory usage, speed to cpu load, and size to disk usage.
To take this project forward, I would like to provide richer interaction with the visualization than the current pan and zoom functionality, and also to find an effective way to present some of the raw data in response to interaction with the visualization.
