SolidFire stats collection w/Grafana and Graphite

I’ve been working on putting together a completely container based Grafana+Graphite dashboard for SolidFire for the past two weeks and I’ve got something I’m ready to call an early beta ready to roll.  

At a high level, there are three containers built using docker-compose that make up the application stack. 
  1. SFCollector -> runs the actual Python collection script that makes API calls to one or more SolidFire clusters to collect metrics, parse them and then push them into the Graphite container.
  2. Graphite -> stores the time series data pushed from the collector
  3. Grafana -> graphs the data from Graphite



If you are a SolidFire customer and you want to give it a shot, head over to https://github.com/jedimt/sfcollector, clone the repo and let me know what you think. There is a detailed install PDF included in the repo, but I’ve also cut a quick video of me doing an install. 

Please note, this IS a beta and there are some rough edges that need to be smoothed out.
