Metrics tools

From The_Open_Source_Way

These are single or bundled tools that people use when gathering, processing, analyzing, and reporting on open community metrics.

It's most useful if the tools provided are open source themselves, or at least provide a no-cost access. The goal is to enable people to use the same tools to do their own work in their own communities.


  • "Kosmos" the Komposite Open Source Monitoring Suite:
  • Metrics Grimoire - centralises and cross references information gathered from mailing lists (Mailing List Stats), bug trackers (Bicho), Git and Gerrit into one dashboard
    • Used by OpenStack, Wikimedia Foundation; supported and developed by Bitergia
  • Pentaho-based dashboards
    • Mostly bespoke, requires tooling for data gathering, some ETL to transform the data to a common cube, and reports to generate usable stats
    • CDF, the Community Dashboard Framework, is a useful tool to use - developed by WebDetails, the Portugese company who developed the Mozilla metrics dashboard and Tizen metrics dashboard.
    • More information on Pentaho-based dashboards and reporting on the MeeGo wiki
