Abstract or Summary
  • Statistics and Metrics Generator (SMG), is a software tool that gathers, stores and reports performance and execution metrics for a web-based software installation process. The purpose of this project was to develop a software utility that provides feedback about software download and installation process efficiency. A web-based software installation is prone to errors such as cache miss, incomplete download, improper installation, hardware faults etc. SMG is useful in post-monitoring the download process and providing feedback to the user. This tool parses software download information from various logs generated during installation and generates reports that provide success ratio, failure analysis and status information. SMG provides insight into how the download process executed, what errors it encountered, how much time it took for completion, and overall success percentage on a weekly, monthly and quarterly basis. It also generates charts of Operating System loads, customer specified software loads etc. The project was developed and is in production at Sun Microsystems Inc., but it is portable to any external web-based software installation process.
