Delete old graphite data based on instance name patternand current running AWS instances.

Project description

Delete old graphite data based on instance name pattern and current running AWS instances.

This is very useful if you have AWS instances that are terminated and you no longer need their metrics, so you can just remove their stats.

It is required to have AWS credentials set via environment variables (AWS_ACCESS_KEY_ID and AWS_SECRET_ACCESS_KEY) or IAM roles.


$ pip install graphite_aws_cleaner


# aws context
web_i-123 # running
web_i-456 # running
web_i-789 # terminated

$ graphite-aws-cleaner '*web*' /opt/graphite/storage

This is going to delete all graphite data related to web_i-789, since the instance is no longer runnning.


Anything that matches Python’s fnmatch.fnmatch works as a pattern:




matches everything


matches any single character


matches any character in seq


matches any character not in seq


$ make setup

Running tests
