Project GraPi – Completed Kiosk Hardware (#06)

Creating a health dashboard by hacking intelligence into an AOpen (the ‘A’ for ancient) monitor; with metrics aggregated by Graphite and beautifully displayed with Grafana. This marks the completion of hardware needed for the GraPi system – our AOpen monitor now functioning as a smart Kiosk. Minor mishap; realized at the end that the USB/Ethernet […]

Project GraPi – Why so slow, Raspberry Pi? (#05)

Creating a health dashboard by hacking intelligence into an AOpen (the ‘A’ for ancient) monitor; with metrics aggregated by Graphite and beautifully displayed with Grafana. I’d like to say that the build went on without a hitch, but I ran into two issues. Not project critical issues, but troublesome nonetheless. Let’s talk about them, and […]

Project GraPi – Loose ends (#04)

Creating a health dashboard by hacking intelligence into an AOpen (the ‘A’ for ancient) monitor; with metrics aggregated by Graphite and beautifully displayed with Grafana. As promised, let’s dive into some of the modifications made to Audio Control and USB/Ethernet Hub – all part of the master plan. Audio Control – Moving Audio IN, INside […]

Project GraPi – Boom, CLAP the sound of my Goals (#02)

Creating a health dashboard by hacking intelligence into an AOpen (the ‘A’ for ancient) monitor; with metrics aggregated by Graphite and beautifully displayed with Grafana. Let’s get some simple objectives and materials down before I change my mind.That way, I’ll have a post to update when I do. Requirements All hardware must be contained within […]

Project GraPi – Inception (#01)

Creating a health dashboard by hacking intelligence into an AOpen (the ‘A’ for ancient) monitor; with metrics aggregated by Graphite and beautifully displayed with Grafana. Background Killing Floor 2 can be pretty fun, especially with a great crew. Not to mention the amazing community, which continues to pump out workshop content such as custom maps. […]
