The RailsMachine crew wrote us this week to tell us their Moonshine deployment and configuration management system has been updated to work with the Rails 3 beta.

RailsMetrics is an engine that hooks into your application and listens to ActiveSupport::Notifications, and shows you statistics about them. RailsMetrics uses threads to save those notifications in the database through an in-process Queue.

There is an example app at github.com/engineyard/rails_metrics_example
