Riak Data-UI

Some of my favorite features of Futon were the ability to edit the configuration of the server from the web interface, check job status (compaction, view indexing, etc), and used almost all the time was the overview to see data size and number of documents:




This little table was the best because I could immediately see who is using what, how many documents are there (many times to make sure the count is going up at a rate that it should be); and of course I could run map-reduces in there as well, but I understand that works a bit differently in Riak.


Some other nice-to-haves would be:


·         Paged-Object browser

o    You can jump to a single value if you know the key

o    Links can be clicked through to view the different linked values

·         Create/Delete/Modify buckets and bucket attributes

·         Graphs for stats

o    I'm not sure if history for the /stats call is saved somewhere so I'm not sure if this is possible without a little overhead

o    Right now I use the munin plugins, but I'm not sure if I get the full benefit of all the stats in there 

·         More intelligent log viewer

o    Erlang logs are pretty nasty if you aren't into the language, it would be nice to have a more "parsed" view into what an error actually *means*

·         Love the memory usage, and ring partition usage but some disk stats would be nice

o    On the node list it would be nice to see disk space usage and/or iops as well


I wouldn't mind contributing to the project, I just don't see a file on "contributing", or the roadmap for Riak Control, or a backlog, or anything like that so if I wasn't sure where to spend time if I was to.

Hi Chad, 


We decided to focus our development on Riak Control moving forward on administration features, specifically understanding how your cluster is performing, managing node addition and removal and visualizing distribution of data throughout the ring.


However, I'd be very interested in hearing which features of Futon you find most useful and what you're looking for in a UI for Riak.

I understand that Riak Control was going to have object-browsing features, but they have been pushed-back and/or abandoned. Is there a data browser out there that is easy to use and provides features similar to Futon? I've looked at Rekon, and it just isn't very useful IMO.
