Analytics server

The analytics server is responsible for handling data exports / imports at the /db/* endpoints. It also includes a callback to re-generate dashboard plots periodically.

Rendering third party figures for the dashboard

To render external figures with the /operational-dashboard endpoint, the config.toml used to run the server must contain a valid extra_plots_dir entry, e.g.

  extra_plots_dir = "/tmp/dasboard_plots_dir"
  generate_plots_every = 3600  # in seconds

Any .png in this folder will then be displayed at the end of /operational-dashboard page. Figures are sorted alphabetically: prepend a number to the figure file name for a specific ordering.

To generate these plots manually run,

python scripts/ --config=<config.toml>
