Graphite vs Pencil: What are the differences?
What is Graphite? A highly scalable real-time graphing system. Graphite does two things: 1) Store numeric time-series data and 2) Render graphs of this data on demand.
What is Pencil? A Microframework Inspired by Flask for Rust. A web application microframework for Rust.
Graphite belongs to "Monitoring Tools" category of the tech stack, while Pencil can be primarily classified under "Microframeworks (Backend)".
Graphite and Pencil are both open source tools. Graphite with 4.63K GitHub stars and 1.21K forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than Pencil with 872 GitHub stars and 42 GitHub forks.
Looking for a tool which can be used for mainly dashboard purposes, but here are the main requirements:
- Must be able to get custom data from AS400,
- Able to display automation test results,
- System monitoring / Nginx API,
- Able to get data from 3rd parties DB.
Grafana is almost solving all the problems, except AS400 and no database to get automation test results.
You can look out for Prometheus Instrumentation (https://prometheus.io/docs/practices/instrumentation/) Client Library available in various languages https://prometheus.io/docs/instrumenting/clientlibs/ to create the custom metric you need for AS4000 and then Grafana can query the newly instrumented metric to show on the dashboard.
