The Graphite interface introduces several extensive capabilities. In order to use its complete functionality, we must log in. After doing so, we can save graphs, delete saved graphs, load graphs that other users have created and customized, and much more.
This recipe will take you through the interface to create a graph, save it, and load it later. Finally, we can avoid extremely technical discussions for a while!
In this recipe, we will be combining the results of all the previous recipes related to collectd and Graphite. We recommend that you have a functional monitor server configured, as discussed in those recipes.
When we installed and configured Graphite, it should have asked for a username and password for the primary administrative user. This information will be necessary to log in to the interface.
