Created in 2006 and released as open source software in 2008 , Graphite is a free (open software) tool for monitoring and graphing the performance of computer systems.[1]

Graphite collects, stores, and displays time series data in real time. There are three main components:

  1. carbon - a Twisted daemon that listens for time-series data
  2. whisper - a simple database library for storing time-series data (similar in design to RRD)
  3. graphite webapp - A Django webapp that renders graphs on-demand using Cairo
