ChartBeat – real-time analytics tool for your website

For my line of work we use a num­ber of tools to mon­i­tor and track user activ­i­ties in our games, among these is a lit­tle known web app called Chart­Beat. It pro­vides real-time ana­lyt­ics data on what’s hap­pen­ing on your page, how many peo­ple are look­ing at your page, what are they look­ing at, etc.

Whilst oth­er ana­lyt­ics tools such as Google Ana­lyt­ics and Kon­ta­gent are use­ful too, the abil­i­ty to see the lev­el of user activ­i­ties in real-time have a lot of added val­ues. For instance, it helps us bet­ter under­stand the rela­tion­ship between the uti­liza­tion of our servers and the num­ber of con­cur­rent users and there­fore being able to derive a more accu­rate mod­el of esti­mat­ing serv­er require­ments for future growth.
