Technology

The graphs are generated by Grafana with Graphite/Whisper being used as the data store, and Python scripts to scrape the data. Scripts and how it is set up is available on GitHub.

There are a couple caveats; Grafana will sometimes bin results so the daily counts are off by 1 or 2 and the extra 1 or 2 are in they day before or day after. The other is that while the dashboards are set to correct for the browser - daylight savings time means the hourly and 15 minutes graphs appear an hour earlier than reality. (MDT = -6, instead of -7).
