Here at Ooyala, we use Twitter Storm to compute real-time video metrics for our Ooyala Now product. When working with a high-performance distributed system, gaining visibility and metrics into the production system without significantly impacting performance is crucial to troubleshooting and operations. Seeing a gap at the time, we rolled our own metrics solution for Storm, and we are happy to open source metrics-storm and make it available to the Storm developer community.
