Abstract [en]

System monitoring is a practice that is frequent within

companies providing digital products to consumers and is a

common way to help developers contribute to a good enduser

experience by ensuring a high availability and good

performance of the product.

This thesis is a design-driven exploratory study on designing

interaction and visualization for system monitoring

data, using web technologies. The design space spans over

interaction design and technical domains, exploring system

monitoring data interaction and visualization from an HCI

perspective as well as technical possibilities and limitations

of the web platform.

An artifact embodying new ideas and design visions regarding

the topic is created in close collaboration with the

target users. The artifact expresses possible and potentially

valuable inventions regarding exploration of system

monitoring data. It also emphasizes the close relationship

between system monitoring and physical space and how the

interaction with it can provide a useful sense of place to the


Technical insights and good practices regarding developing

performant data visualization user interfaces is also

presented and motivated, where two methods providing different

strengths and weaknesses are described.
