Common components for Narcissus, realtime log visualization

Project Description

This package contains the “common” components for narcissus.

Narcissus is a web application that visualizes web server hits as they happen in real time.


  • IP addresses converted to latitude/longitude, then streamed via WebSockets to polymaps.
  • Realtime graphs of what countries are downloading what content with d3.
  • Ømq (zeromq) on the backend.
  • Fast. No polling.

Live Demo

You can see narcissus running live at

The Research Computing department at the Rochester Institute of Technology runs that narcissus instance. It is pointed at their very active FOSS mirror. (That site is the highest-traffic site at RIT!)
