Regardless of if you’re trying to plot business metric, performance metrics or system stats, HostedGraphite is a great tool to have in your toolkit.
Once you’ve started pushing data to HostedGraphite, you need to create a dashboard. Our preference for this is to use Grafana, as it looks a lot better than Graphite. Simply follow the Grafana dashboard guide to create a dashboard.
With your dashboard(s) created, you need to add them to Screenly. To do this, you need to use the ‘Share temp copy’ feature in the user interface. This will generate a secret URL (much like we did in our Nagios guide).
Once you have your secret URL, just go ahead and add it as an asset in Screenly.
