Carbon-Cache AttributeError: 'function' object has no attribute 'get'

Asked by Nathan Spiegl on 2017-03-01


I hope someone is able to help with this, I have searched everywhere and cant seem to find any other cases. I have just installed the graphite package from source and for the most part everything is working fine.

The problem I'm facing is when I view a graph on graphite-web I get this exception in the carbon-cache console log:

01/03/2017 09:13:22 :: Unhandled Error

  File "/opt/graphite/lib/carbon/", line 202, in stringReceived
    datapoints = MetricCache.get(metric, {}).items()
exceptions.AttributeError: 'function' object has no attribute 'get'

Would anyone be able to advise what might be causing this?

Graphite master require django 1.9.x, graphite 0.9.15 - django 1.4.x .. 1.6.x

Hi Denis,

Thanks for the advice. I am running Graphite master and had Django 1.9 already installed, I just upgraded to 1.9.12 to see if this would change anything but I am still getting the exception: "exceptions.AttributeError: 'function' object has no attribute 'get'" in my Carbon-Cache log.

I should mention that graphite-web is rendering the graph's fine without any issue, the metrics are being displayed as expected. I just want to know what is causing this exception that is appearing in the Carbon log.

If it helps these are the Python modules I have installed:

attrs (16.3.0)
Automat (0.5.0)
cairocffi (0.8.0)
cffi (1.9.1)
constantly (15.1.0)
Django (1.9.12)
django-tagging (0.4.3)
incremental (16.10.1)
pip (9.0.1)
pycparser (2.17)
pyparsing (2.1.10)
python-memcached (1.58)
pytz (2016.10)
scandir (1.5)
setuptools (20.7.0)
six (1.10.0)
Twisted (17.1.0)
wheel (0.29.0)
whisper (0.10.0rc1)
whitenoise (3.3.0)
zope.interface (4.3.3)

Oops, sorry, looks like mixed up with different issue.
I'm suspecting it's because of this recent commit -
Need to check more.

Denis Zhdanov (deniszhdanov) said : #4

Yes, you're right, I tested that and opened an issue -

Denis Zhdanov (deniszhdanov) said : #5

Should be fixed now -
