Running graphite on Docker

Asked by bhas

I am trying to follow the instructions on the Docker graphite page-

It seems to be running and I can send the fake example data and see it on the Graphite Dashboard.
However, thats all I can do.

If I send my own stats like this, I can see this field in the Dashboard-
echo "local.random.ticks 4 `date +%s`" | nc -u 2003

But how come there is no /opt/graphite/storage folder.
And very puzzling, maybe because I have not used Docker before, the paths are all relative.
It all seems to be under -

The carbon.conf in /var/lib/docker/overlay2/88c8c3cd2f2b280d42a5102b46af311de293dbb85ee602b3bf70675ca9dd0f1c/diff/opt/graphite/conf/

  is identical to

What seems to be missing due to which there is no storage folder?

Thank you

Well I asked too soon. I did eventually figure out how to send stats to statsd using python. Then I was able to see the graphs. Things are looking good.

Is there a way to turn off statsd and just send it to Carbon?
