trouble querying for non png format

Asked by bciceron on 2012-06-20

hello,

with v0.9.10 the default dashboard works ok but ...

from the command line i cannot get any other format than PNG ,
and it's always default one with "no data" .

so far i tried wget and curl to fetch same data as on dashboard e.g http://localhost:8080/render?target=stats.test&format=json .

any suggestion ?

thanks,
ben-

When you say commandline do you mean wget and curl or the "Graphite CLI" interface?

So when you wget the URL with format=json, do you get back a PNG with no data or something else?

i meant wget/curl.

when i use them i always get the default PNG "no data" (whatever the data i fetch, whatever the format i specify).

Aha - Try quoting the URL. If you dont quote it, the ampersand is interpreted by the commandline to mean that you want the prior command backgrounded - the format=json in that case will be left off of the URL sent to graphite
