We've been talking for several weeks now about our work on Cloud Analytics. Today, we're showing the world what we've put together. Now available on Joyent's Node.js Service: a first look at Cloud Analytics in action -- on your very own Node.js application.
Cloud Analytics (CA for short) is a tool for real-time performance analysis of production systems and applications deployed in the cloud. If you've got a Node SmartMachine already, you can log into your account and start using CA right now. Note: most of the metrics require node version 0.4.0 or later. If you login and don't see any data but you know your application is busy, make sure you've upgraded to the latest version of node.
