Doctor Graphite or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Dots

Brad Lhotsky (, Systems & Security Administrator @ Craigslist

Graphite revolutionized monitoring and our expectations of monitoring tools. Criticized for being too slow, clunky, or awkward, most folks are moving away from Graphite to other tools promising horizontal scaling, SQL-ish syntax, and fancy, shiny moving parts. We'll discuss why Graphite's simple Whisper file backend might be all you need. We'll try squeezing all the performance we can from the official Graphite applications. The talk will cover some features in the new 1.1.x branch and how you can use Graphite to be more successful.


Doors open at 6:30pm. Catch up with other quantifiers over food and drinks. Talks start at 7:00pm and end at 8pm. Space is limited, please RSVP.
