MiniMot
=======

A miniature performance monitoring application.

The principle is based on `Graham Dumpleton blog's post
<http://blog.dscpl.com.au/2015/05/monitoring-response-content-from-wsgi.html>`_.

There are two components to this project:

* a client: the WSGI middleware acting on the requests of your WSGI app
* a server: an async service/API receiving and exposing the stats from the
WSGI app




Development
-----------

If you wish to run the server side of application.

* Install virtualenvwrapper

::

    dnf install python-virtualenvwrapper

* Create the virtualenv

::

    mkvirtualenv -p python3 minimot

* Install the dependencies

::

    pip3 install -r requirements.txt

* Create the database

::

    python3 createdb.py


* Start the server

::

    ./minimot-run

* Generate some fake metadata

::

    python3 generate_data.py


.. note: This project is python3 only


Architecture
------------

The architecture of the project looks a little bit like this
