Erlang Performance Lab

Erlang Performance Lab

For a few years we've been playing with an idea of visualising Erlang nodes and processes in a way that would help developers quickly grasp the behaviour of a cluster or a node. In 2016 Netflix released open source components visualising traffic in computer networks, which helped build a new generation of the tool.

In this talk we present examples of visualisations of inter-node traffic within an Erlang cluster, a supervision tree busy with after-crash restarts, a set of processes involved in message passing between them. Animations from the presentations were posted on YouTube channel
