Carbon is one of three components within the Graphite project:
- Graphite-Web, a Django-based web application that renders graphs and dashboards
- The Carbon metric processing daemons
- The Whisper time-series database library
Carbon is responsible for receiving metrics over the network, caching them in memory for "hot queries" from the Graphite-Web application, and persisting them to disk using the Whisper time-series library.
