Graphite connection (graphite)

The graphite model contains information to provide the monitored system performance data to Carbon/Graphite.

The Alignak backend will use those information to connect to a Carbon daemon and send the timeseries data. If you are using a StatsD daemon as a front-end of the Carbon daemon create a relation with a StatsD data model instance. To make the Alignak backend create some Grafana panels for the metrics sent to Graphite create a relation with a Grafana data model instance.

_realm: Realm this element belongs to.

_sub_realm: Is this element visible in the sub-realms of its realm?

grafana: If set, the Alignak backend will use this Grafana relation for the metrics sent to the Influx DB. It will create/update the Grafana panels accordindgly.

name: Unique Graphite connection name

prefix: Prefix that will be prepended to the metrics sent to this TS DB.

realms_prefix: Include the realms prefix for the metrics sent to this TS DB.

statsd: If set, the Alignak backend will use this StatsD relation for the metrics sent to the Influx DB.
