I want to track some metrics about something. I want to download a particular URL at a particular frequency, apply a regexp or do a count to extract a number from the returned info, and store it in a database. I then want to do pretty charts and graphs, all the usual metrics stuff.
So for example, I might want to do:
- Daily; https://api-dev.bugzilla.mozilla.org/latest/count?component=BzAPI; /data: (\d+)/
- Daily; http://hg.mozilla.org/mozilla-central/shortlog; count: /diff/
- Weekly: https://wiki.mozilla.org/index.php?title=Special:RecentChanges&days=7; count: /hist/
And so on. Basically, a generic metrics gathering and display engine. (Or two bits of software, one for each part.) Does this software exist? If not, anyone want to build it?
