Graphite Graphs for WordPress

It’s no secret that I love Graphite. My co-workers think it’s a bit ridiculous how much data I feed into our graphite server. I may be a bit excessive, but I have a monitor in my office which allows me to see at a glance every little detail about our network in real time – server health, pageviews, Google Pagespeed Insight scores, etc. I can’t even describe how wonderful a tool it is.

I wanted an easy way to display graphite graphs on the WordPress dashboard. So I rolled out a plugin over the weekend. I give you WordPress Graphite Graphs – I admit I [somewhat] got the idea from WPVIP’s “page generation time” graph in the VIP dashboard, but I’m sure they won’t mind. This plugin allows me (or you) to rapidly deploy monitoring graphs across many different sites without a lot of hassle and NO custom code for each site. Just plug in the URL of your graphite server, the metrics you want to display, and viola – Graphy delight! While I was at it, I went ahead and added support for graphs on the front-end in the sidebar that can be hidden from non-users if needed. Why not, right?

Shoot me a tweet if you’re interested in additional features or get in on the action and fork it on github.

      Sorry for the delayed response, but I did deploy the Spanish translation about a month back. Hope you can make use of it!

      Cheers!

  1. Hey Andrew,

    I’m in the process of finalizing the next version of the plugin which will add a few more features to the capabilities of the plugin. I will most certainly throw in translation for es_ES for you. I expect to deploy that version within the week and it will be available on github as well as the public WordPress.org repository.

    Additionally, if you’d like to make your own translations, you are welcome to fork the code which is available on github at https://github.com/rcoll/graphite-graphs .
