comment Disk Capacity Planning for Whisper / Graphite
You have to calculate this for every retention policy, and 4.5MB is what it works out to for my (single) retention policy, but yes, that's the rough formula...

comment Disk Capacity Planning for Whisper / Graphite
This is a new implementation at this company, and I don't have access to my old one. Since the top-level fileSize result matches the ls -l result, I take that to be bytes. When I add up the sizes of the archives within the .wsp file (as reported by whisper-info.py), they come close to the overall .wsp file size (the rest I assume being metadata and such. This should be the size of the file for all time, as data falls down to lower data resolutions, and old data points are discarded.

I can't upvote that comment enough. OP, you're putting a lot of effort into not learning g tools that will actually help you. Learn Git and Chef (or Puppet, ir Ansible, or SaltStack...)

comment Are most webserver benchmarks useless?
I agree with the heart of your answer, but I'd say that the most important benchmarks are the performance profile of your app in Production (a continuous and constantly watched set of metrics.)
