Guide to getting Graphite up and running
Hmm last online 12 months ago,
Don't use Graphite. It scales poorly, is a pain in the ass to deal with via all the carbon options, etc.
Use cassabon as your carbon listener and storage: https://github.com/jeffpierce/cassabon
Use graphite-api with the cyanite-reader plugin to handle Grafana's requests: https://github.com/brutasse/graphite-api
Use Grafana to render your graphs/dashboards: http://grafana.org/
Looks like I've got alot more reading and googling to do.
For those wondering.... @Technomancer is the author of Cassabon.
I gave a talk about the stats setup I'm talking about here (just replace mentions of Cyanite with Cassabon): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8yErya52xTw
@Technomancer a walkthrough on building a Grafana / Cassabon system on CentOS 7 would be pretty sweet. A lot of people here would love to get that set up. Just a simple single system setup is all that is really needed. Most everyone, not all but most, are in small environments so a single VM handling all of this would be the common use case.
So I'm currently trying to set up Worldping but I'm having troubles setting up the API key.
Was wondering if you could lend a hand.
I continuously see
curl -H "Authorization: Bearer
api key" http://worldping-api.raintank.io/api/dashboards/db/mydash
like this and similar.
I'm also reading that I can just authenticate by username
None of this is working, could you point me in the right direction.
