Description

What is Graphite?

Graphite does two things: 1) Store numeric time-series data and 2) Render graphs of this data on demand

What is StatsD?

StatsD is a front-end proxy for the Graphite/Carbon metrics server, originally written by Etsy's Erik Kastner.

What is Grafana?

Grafana is a general purpose dashboard and graph composer.
