This sample application details how to setup and use GridDB data generator written in C using the C client API. There will also be instructions on how to use the GridDB Python client in conjunction with Bokeh to launch streaming graphs. The central premise is to use the C API along with the gsl library to generate random but well distributed datasets. This comes in the form of a data generating client.
The context for this application is for monitoring coffee machines in a set of coffee stores that could make up a franchise or chain. Every machine sends an update when it creates and makes an espresso shot or undergoes a clean cycle. From all the collected data, a user could, from any host, monitor every store’s and machine’s statistics through a web frontend. The frontend can adjust and change the plots and data it displays as it monitors for updates from GridDB.
