Algorithm Graphs Analytics

This section will expose how analytics graphs works.

Analytics system follow the steps below.

Making mongodb graph lookup

Graph lookup will create a python dict using mongodb graph, and all application entities have a dep field, its a list with app objects [id, name].


Creating a networkX graph

After graph sends to network business, basically transform python object to networkX.

We have a recursive function inside each node on the tree, this order will apply a lot of rules creating a new graph tree with better UI order, like in these moments we handle with conflicts, double dependencies, orders and etc.

Code example showing the recursive function

def _recursive_draw(self, app, i=0, OHelper=HelperOrderedSuccers):
    if i > 30:

    for item in app:
        if not self._grid.in_index(item):
            node = self._graph.nodes[item]
            helper = self.add_pos_grid(node)

            succ = OHelper(helper).get_succers()
            self._recursive_draw(succ, i + 1)

In these graphs we can see all rules applied on graph to create a best dependency tree. Each recursive tick try to figure out certainty pattern, if found apply a transformation. For example The child balance pattern try to find a multiple child in one parent, if happen then create a dummy item on parent layer.


Growing node

  • When: If the node have more than one child, growing the node to be equal of the number of child
  • Transform: Set the node size to be equal of number of child

Child Balance

  • When: If the parent node have more than two child.
  • Transform: Create a dummy item beside to node parent.

Chess Pawn

  • When: If the app it’s an entry point and have parent.
  • Transform: Skipped one column

Chess horse

  • When: If the node have a top obstacle which other nodes point out to a common dependency.
  • Transform: First push back the dependency to a clear column, and after create a dummy path to the new column.

Clear rows

  • When: After finish the recursive loop, figure out empty columns.
  • Transform: Delete these column and rebalance the grid.

Enrichment data

Next step is an enrichment layer with getting all server data used by each graph.

The enrichment step received two dataset a json python dict represents a graph tree, a matrix position grid. One worker will get all applications accordingly with graph tree creating a new dataset called servers.

Draw layers

Now its draw time, where we have three datasets, one its a graph tree, second its matrix od each position and the last its list of servers.
