Graphite 0.9.16 is now available for usage. Please note that this is a bugfix release for Graphite 0.9.x versions and not recommended for production use. Please use Graphite 1.0.0 for production if possible and use 0.9.16 only if you can’t upgrade to 1.0.0 because of dependencies. Users upgrading from older releases are advised to review the 0.9.16 release notes first.

Source bundles are available from GitHub:

Graphite can also be installed from PyPI via pip. PyPI bundles are here:


Graphite 0.9.16 requires a Django version of at least 1.4. Ensure this dependency is satisfied before updating graphite-web.

Graphite 0.9.16 was not tested against python 2.6.

Graphite 0.9.16 require Twisted version 13.2.0 or newer.

As always, comparing the example config files with existing ones is recommended to ensure awareness of any new features.

If you’re not already running 0.9.15, Graphite-web’s application database will need to be upgraded for a new Django fixture. It’s a good idea to backup the database before proceeding with the migration. The following will upgrade a SQLite database:

sudo cp /opt/graphite/storage/graphite.db \
      /opt/graphite/storage/graphite.db.backup-`date +%Y%m%d_%H%M%S`
sudo PYTHONPATH=/opt/graphite/webapp django-admin.py syncdb \
      --noinput --no-initial-data --settings=graphite.settings
