BigGraphite is a storage layer for timeseries data. It integrates with Graphite as a plugin.
For usage information and how to contribute, please see CONTRIBUTING.md.
There is only one supported backend that provides all features: Cassandra, whose design is described in CASSANDRA_DESIGN.md.
Another backend supports metadata only, stored in Elasticsearch, see ELASTICSEARCH_DESIGN.md. Using it, it is possible to use Cassandra to store data points and Elasticsearch to store metrics metadata.
biggraphite.accessorexposes the public API to store/retrieve metrics
biggraphite.metadata_cacheimplements a machine-local cache using LMDB so that one does not need a round-trip for each call to
biggraphite.plugins.*implements integration with Carbon and Graphite
biggraphite.drivers.*implements the storage backends (eg: Cassandra-specific code)
