Graphite Install

*this assumes debian or ubuntu

Graphite Cookbook Install

$ git clone https://github.com/cookingclouds/cookbooks/tree/master/cc_graphite

I Know there is a cookbook for graphite in the opscode repo but it has dependencies.
This cookbook shouldn’t have dependencies and is also a lot more messy
Run after installing cookbook :

$ /opt/graphite/bin/carbon-cache.py start
$ cd /opt/graphite/webapp/graphite && python manage.py createsuperuser

Examples on how to send data to graphite

hostname = * you guessed it
test_001 = service name
1001 = value
$NOW = epoch time to input in graph

$ NOW=`date +%s` ; echo "hostname.test_001 1001 $NOW" |nc localhost 2003
