Sending data to graphite and viewing it in grafana

DAQ config side

We have a test setup for a graphite DB for metrics running at DAB on sbn-daq02. To send artdaq metrics to it, you need the following fhicl snippet:


    level: 5
    metricPluginType: "graphite" 
    reporting_interval: 1.0
    host: "" 
    port: 2003
    namespace: "artdaq." 


Namespace can be what you like, but the host and port should be that...

Grafana viewing

Log in to sbn-daq02 with port forwarding

ssh -L 3000:localhost:3000

Open your own browser and navigate to localhost:3000. You should be greeted with a login screen. Ask Wes for details to log in.
