Graphite with Ceres instead of Carbon

Asked by Petri Ojala on 2012-06-14

The development environment has been running fine with the carbon-based Graphite (latest release) but I'm not preparing the actual production system and I was wondering if the Ceres-based 1.1 is worth a try?

Obviously we do care about the data but I was wondering if the branch is good enough for production? Or is it better just to keep going with the carbon and plan the switch to ceres in the more mature future?

You'll be best off at the moment planning to switch to Ceres in the near future. Ceres support is merged in here if you want to play with it: http://github.com/mleinart/carbon/tree/graphite-megacarbon along with some changes to how Carbon is configured. The webapp version in master does support reading from it.

The merge of Carbon to trunk should be happening soon though and for production I recommend that you wait until at least then. The webapp in master support reading from both Whisper and Ceres files and there is also a migration script to convert the format with no loss so the upgrade path shouldnt be too hairy

Thanks! The production setup is now with Carbon, we'll update to Ceres when the time will be right.
