Codacy Badge Build Status FOSSA Status codecov


Carbon is one of three components within the Graphite project:

  1. Graphite-Web, a Django-based web application that renders graphs and dashboards
  2. The Carbon metric processing daemons
  3. The Whisper time-series database library

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.
