Getting Started

Steps to getting started:

  • Read the documentation
  • Install via pip install diamond. The releases on GitHub are not recommended for use. Use pypi-install diamond on Debian/Ubuntu systems with python-stdeb installed to build packages.
  • Copy the diamond.conf.example file to diamond.conf.
  • Optional: Run diamond-setup to help set collectors in diamond.conf.
  • Modify diamond.conf for your needs.
  • Run diamond with one of: diamond or initctl start diamond or /etc/init.d/diamond restart.

Success Stories

  • Diamond has successfully been deployed to a cluster of 1000 machines pushing 3 million points per minute.
  • Diamond is deployed on Fabric's infrastructure, polling hundreds of metric sources and pushing millions of points per minute.
  • Have a story? Please share!

Repos

Historically Diamond was a brightcove project and hosted at BrightcoveOS. However none of the active developers are brightcove employees and so the development has moved to python-diamond. We request that any new pull requests and issues be cut against python-diamond. We will keep BrightcoveOS updated and still honor issues/tickets cut on that repo.
