What is Graphite?

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

What is RRDtool?

RRDtool lets you log and analyze the data you gather from all kinds of data-sources (DS). The data analysis part of RRDtool is based on the ability to quickly generate graphical representations of the data values collected over a definable time period.

What is StatsD?

StatsD is a front-end proxy for the Graphite/Carbon metrics server, originally written by Etsy's Erik Kastner. StatsD is a network daemon that runs on the Node.js platform and listens for statistics, like counters and timers, sent over UDP and sends aggregates to one or more pluggable backend services (e.g., Graphite).

        How developers use Graphite, RRDtool, and StatsD

        StatsD is used to track the number of messages we're publishing and the type of realtime subscribers. So it shows the number of longpoll connections, the number of websocket connections etc. It also tracks how Redis is performing.
