carbonapi: replacement graphite API server
CarbonAPI supports a significant subset of graphite functions [see COMPATIBILITY]. In our testing it has shown to be 5x-10x faster than requesting data from graphite-web.
The only required parameter is the address of the zipper to connect to.
$ ./carbonapi -z=http://zipper:8080
Request metrics will be dumped to graphite if the -graphite flag is provided, or if the GRAPHITEHOST/GRAPHITEPORT environment variables are found.
Request data will be stored in memory (default) or in memcache.
OSX Build Notes
Some additional steps may be needed to build carbonapi with cairo rendering on MacOSX.
$ brew install Caskroom/cask/xquartz
$ brew install cairo --with-x11
-tags cairo when building:
$ PKG_CONFIG_PATH=/opt/X11/lib/pkgconfig go build -v -tags cairo
