## Overview

Carbon is one of three components within the Graphite project:

  1. [Graphite-Web](https://github.com/graphite-project/graphite-web), a Django-based web application that renders graphs and dashboards
  2. The Carbon metric processing daemons
  3. The [Whisper](https://github.com/graphite-project/whisper) time-series database library

![Graphite Components](https://github.com/graphite-project/graphite-web/raw/master/webapp/content/img/overview.png “Graphite Components”)

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.
