How to create graphs?

I compiled realfeel.c and at runtime, it looks like below:

[ravi@fedora ravi]$ ./a.out

It is running infinitely. I stopped with Contrl^C key. I want to run it for some time and create a graph with the jitter information. My doubt is how do I capture jitters and which utility on Linux I have to use to see the graph with jitters? I am using Red Hat Linux Fedora 3. I want to generate the graphs as shown in this article.

Thank you,
Ravi

gnuplot

Use gnuplot. Run the tool, redirect the ouput to a file (say jitter.txt), then remove the first few lines from that file and run gnuplot like this

koko$ gnuplot
gnuplot> plot "jitter.txt" using 1

Read the gnuplot doco in order to find out how to make your graph better looking.

Linux Management with Red Hat Satellite: Measuring Business Impact and ROI

Linux has become a key foundation for supporting today's rapidly growing IT environments. Linux is being used to deploy business applications and databases, trading on its reputation as a low-cost operating environment. For many IT organizations, Linux is a mainstay for deploying Web servers and has evolved from handling basic file, print, and utility workloads to running mission-critical applications and databases, physically, virtually, and in the cloud. As Linux grows in importance in terms of value to the business, managing Linux environments to high standards of service quality — availability, security, and performance — becomes an essential requirement for business success.

White Paper
Private PaaS for the Agile Enterprise

If you already use virtualized infrastructure, you are well on your way to leveraging the power of the cloud. Virtualization offers the promise of limitless resources, but how do you manage that scalability when your DevOps team doesn’t scale? In today’s hypercompetitive markets, fast results can make a difference between leading the pack vs. obsolescence. Organizations need more benefits from cloud computing than just raw resources. They need agility, flexibility, convenience, ROI, and control.

Stackato private Platform-as-a-Service technology from ActiveState extends your private cloud infrastructure by creating a private PaaS to provide on-demand availability, flexibility, control, and ultimately, faster time-to-market for your enterprise.
