Administering The Webapp

Depending on the stack you choose to expose the Graphite webapp, its usage varies slightly.

nginx + gunicorn

As nginx is already ready to proxy requests, we just need to start Gunicorn.

The following will do:

PYTHONPATH=/opt/graphite/webapp gunicorn wsgi --workers=4 --bind= --log-file=/var/log/gunicorn.log --preload --pythonpath=/opt/graphite/webapp/graphite &

It will start Gunicorn and listen on localhost:8080, log to /var/log/gunicorn.log and use /opt/graphite/webapp/graphite as the webapp path.

Naturally, you can change these settings so that it fits your setup.
