Grafana is an open source metric visualizer. In our setup it feeds on a graphite-carbon instance, which itself can be fed simply: echo “test.bash.stats 42 `date +%s`” | nc 2003

  1. dpkg -i grafana_3.1.1-1470047149_amd64.deb
  2. sudo apt-get install graphite-carbon
  3. sudo apt-get install graphite-web
  4. sudo graphite-manage syncdb
  5. sudo nano /etc/graphite/
  6. sudo cp /usr/share/graphite-web/apache2-graphite.conf /etc/apache2/sites-available/
  7. sudo nano /etc/apache2/sites-available/
  8. now change the grafana admin password!
  9. http://...grafana… and add data source: graphite, ddddd, proxy
  10. Graphite is built on fixed-size databases (see Whisper.) so we have to configure in advance how much data we intend to store and at what level of precision.
    1. Do this in: /etc/carbon/storage-schemas.conf
