Aggregation, Graphing, and Historical Values

metrics-clojure is a wrapper around metrics, and metrics only stores the current
value of any given metric.  It doesn't keep the values at previous times around
(aside from the one/five/fifteen minute windows for timers and meters).

Not storing historical data is important because it allows metrics to be used in
production without worrying about memory usage growing out of control.

In practice you'll want to not only view these instantaneous values but also
their values over time.  For this you'll need to turn to external utilities.

You can implement a solution yourself as we'll show in the example below, or use
an existing utility that metrics-clojure provides support for.

Implementing a Simple Graphing Server

Tip: Filter by directory path e.g. /media app.js to search for public/media/app.js.
Tip: Use camelCasing e.g. ProjME to search for
Tip: Filter by extension type e.g. /repo .js to search for all .js files in the /repo directory.
Tip: Separate your search with spaces e.g. /ssh pom.xml to search for src/ssh/pom.xml.
Tip: Use ↑ and ↓ arrow keys to navigate and return to view the file.
Tip: You can also navigate files with Ctrl+j (next) and Ctrl+k (previous) and view the file with Ctrl+o.
Tip: You can also navigate files with Alt+j (next) and Alt+k (previous) and view the file with Alt+o.
