Description O. Hartmann 2017-03-10 08:02:56 UTC
Setting up a larger, clustered environment, Graphite/Carbon provides relaying of metrics/data. Relaying is a important feature of Graphite/Carbon.

This port only supports a local cache, driven by carbon-cache.py. Any attempt to start a relaying instance with the provided port and documentation ended up in a local cache.

The rc script doesn't respect the difference between cache only and relaying and there is no note on this restriction which makes the Graphite/Carbon project a toy or even worse, unusable for needs where carbon needs to be clustered (which is in our case).

Created attachment 180694 [details]
Adding RELAY service

As Attachment, you'll find an altered rc-srcipt residing in files/carbon.in.

It provides an additionla knob and several small changes, to provide carbon cache or, mutual exclusively, the carbon relay. As I understand CARBON, it can run as a cache XOR a relay - and that is the way I handle the patch for now. I was the easiest way to get a relay working.

I think it would be possible to provide both by doubling the environment variables in a suitable way, but as far as I know, other maintainer split a port then into two.
