Export metrics to Graphite providers

You can use the Graphite connector for the exporting engine to archive your agent's metrics to Graphite providers for long-term storage, further analysis, or correlation with data from other sources.


To enable data exporting to a Graphite database, run ./edit-config exporting.conf in the Netdata configuration directory and set the following options:

enabled = yes
destination = localhost:2003

Add :http or :https modifiers to the connector type if you need to use other than a plaintext protocol. For example: graphite:http:my_graphite_instance, graphite:https:my_graphite_instance. You can set basic HTTP authentication credentials using

    username = my_username
password = my_password

The Graphite connector is further configurable using additional settings. See the exporting reference doc for details.
