[rrd-developers] Demo: RRD - Web 2.0 style

I have set up a little demo for something I have hacked together since
yesterday: RRD - Web 2.0 style. I can only show you a flash video I
produced. Its quality is questionable, as the RRD graph output is a little
blurry (because the recording software used vnc to access the screen +
video compression), but you'll get the idea.
What's it doing, you ask. Well: It allows to zoom in and out of any rrd
graph using the mouse wheel and it allows google-maps style panning of the
graph using the mouse. See for yourself:
The link uses the wrong mime-type for the file, but I'm too lazy to fix
this, so you might have to d/l the file and view it locally.
It is implemented using my java-rrd implementation for the server side
(used via a java servlet) and about 200 lines of java script using jQuery
and some services exposed using DWR for AJAX between java script and the
java server side.
Tobi: What I was missing most when implementing this was some indication
of the absolute date/time a graph refers to. Note the use of the right
axis label for this.
In theory, I could provide a standalone servlet (+add'l stuff for DWR) for
this, but it would require some rewrite of the machinery to make it more
self contained and I wonder if there is a "market" for this.
The movie shows the interaction between my laptop as the server and an
Atom-based desktop machine on a LAN. Its responsiveness is not perfect
(mostly depending on the server side CPU performance), but it was never
easier to view RRD data for me.
Has this been done before?
