Installing Graphite doesn't have to be difficult. The
resynthesize script in synthesize is designed to make it brain-dead easy to install Graphite and related services onto a modern Linux distribution.
RESynthesize is built to run on CentOS 8.1 and older. It will not run on other Linux distributions. The goal of this project is not to become an automation alternative to modern configuration management utilities (e.g. Chef or Puppet), but rather, to make it as easy as possible for the beginner Graphite user to get started and familiar with the project without having to learn a suite of other automation and/or infrastructure-related projects.
The resulting Graphite web interface listens only on https port 443 and has been configured to collect metrics specifically for helping profile the performance of your Graphite and Carbon services. It uses memcached for improved query performance, and Statsite for a fast, C-based implementation of the StatsD collector/aggregator.
Beginning with version 3.0.0 we've also incorporated the Grafana dashboard project, a modern and full-featured alternative to Graphite's built-in Composer and Dashboard interfaces. It also includes a default dashboard for monitoring Carbon's internal statistics.

Any superuser (Django) account don't exist per default. This account grants access to the administrative features in the backend Django database.
This account can be created with the following commands:
$ sudo PYTHONPATH=/opt/graphite/webapp django-admin.py createsuperuser --settings=graphite.settings
Grafana includes a default user to start:
It's now possible to upgrade an existing Synthesize (e.g. Graphite 0.9.15) to the newest Graphite
HEAD. Besides upgrading the Graphite components, it will also migrate the webapp database (
graphite.db) to the newest fixtures version.
$ cd resynthesize $ sudo ./resynthesize -u
$ cd synthesize $ sudo ./resynthesize -d
