Easy App Metrics

Frank Wiles

Audience level:



Collecting and visualizing metrics is hard right, so we'll do them later. Learn how to easily collect any server or client side metrics with Django, InfluxDB, and Graphana.


We all like pretty graphs, but determining what to collect and actually collecting the data are often pushed down the road because of the complexity. Learn about simple ways to collect and use metrics from day one. You'll learn about:

  • What to collect
  • How super easy it can be
  • Techniques for collecting today, but using tomorrow
  • Processing your metrics out of band to not slow down your code
  • Tips for scaling in large systems
  • Visualizing your metrics with Graphana
