4.6 quality score

We run a couple of automated
scans to help you access a
module's quality. Each module is
given a score based on how well
the author has formatted their
code and documentation and
modules are also checked for
malware using VirusTotal.

Please note, the information below
is for guidance only and neither of
these methods should be considered
an endorsement by Puppet.

gdsoperations/graphite — version 2.1.0 Feb 12th 2019

A Puppet module for managing the installation of Graphite.



You can either install using a package or Python Pip (default behaviour). If you decide to use Pip, then you will need Python, Python's development headers/libs, pip and virtualenv installed. If you're not already managing these you can use the python module, which is included as a dependency:

class { 'python':
  pip        => true,
  dev        => true,
  virtualenv => true,

Then for the simplest possible configuration:

include graphite

To install using a package:

class { 'graphite':
   use_python_pip => false,

To specifiy the package name, use the following parameters:



If you want to run the web interface on a port other than 80 you can pass this in like so:

class { 'graphite':
  port => 9000,


If you want to install a specific version of whisper and carbon, you like so:

class { 'graphite':
  port    => 9000,
  version => '0.9.12',

Another Graphite module?

Graphite can be painfull to install and many blog posts and gists are dedicated to that fact. However it appears to have got easier with most of the components now available in the Python Package repository. All the other puppet modules I found either lacked support for Ubuntu/Debian, relied on an undocumented package or did a lot of wgetting.

Although I've only tested this module on Ubuntu it should work on other distros too, maybe with minor tweaks.
