I want to avoid these big long lists of stats requests to Stats.rb, because a) there's no performance hit AFAICT in breaking them up into smaller requests, and b) the graph (or whatever walks the tree and assembles the data lists for the graph) needs to make more precise requests for data.
A fine net change, overall.
It's great to do whitespace clean-up, but please keep that sort of change
separate from anything substantial. Otherwise, it's more work for the
reviewer to separate the trivially-ignorable whitespace changes from
the ones that are significant.
If you run this, it'll make git colorize diff output:
(it modifies settings in ~/.gitconfig)
git config --global color.ui auto
Then do "git log -p -1" (but don't pipe it into anything) and you'll
see the most recent commit. If it's this one, you should see dark
red rectangles marking the offending white spaces on lines added by
When I applied that change set via "git am FILE", I saw these warnings:

Another nit-picky, but important detail:
Note your long subject line. It seems rude of git to concatenate things
like that, but that's the way it works. You can accommodate it by
changing the log (git commit --amend) to have a single empty
line after the first "summary" line:
Add max/min methods to StatsDataList.

[with this next bit, we're getting really minor, but comments/logs matter, too]
Also, note that "Add ..." is recommended over "Adds ..."
in all types of documentation (active voice vs passive, direct vs
Another example: I'd change this comment:
- # returns data for one pool/host/vm, one target
+ # return data for one pool/host/vm, one target
On to the more substantial:
In Stats.rb, there are four blocks nearly identical to this one:
if ( final > my_max )
my_max = final
if ( final < my_min )
my_min = final
This is more concise and equivalent:
my_min = [my_min, final].min
my_max = [my_max, final].max
Also, I noticed that the pre-existing style is to initialize variables at
the top of a block or function. It's better to avoid that style, and
instead to place any initialization as near as possible to the first use.
For example, if you move the initializations of my_max and my_min down
so they're nearer their first uses, readers don't have to worry about
whether they're used uninitialized (now the initialization is just before
the loop), or if the values are modified between initialization and
whatever use the reader is looking at.
I like your peak_history and _time_short_format changes.
Much more readable that way. I.e., when the resulting lines
fit in 80-columns, side-by-side diffs are more useful.
+ megabyte = 1024
+ totalMemory = @pool.hosts.total_memory
+ tick = megabyte
+ if totalMemory >= 10 * megabyte && totalMemory < 100 * megabyte
+ tick = 10 * megabyte
+ elsif totalMemory >= 100 * megabyte && totalMemory < 1024 * megabyte
+ tick = 100 * megabyte
+ tick = 1024 * megabyte
+ counter = 0
+ while counter * tick < totalMemory do
+ counter += 1 #this gives us one tick mark beyond totalMemory
+ scale.push((counter * tick / 1024).to_s) # divide by 1024 to convert to MB
Maybe that while loop test should be "<=", in case
totalMemory is exactly 100*1024 or 1024*1024?
Otherwise, it looks like there will be no ticks
for those two edge cases.
