I've recently reconfigured my graphite setup from a single carbon-cache instance to several carbon-cache instances. As I needed to cook this up on a new host without bringing down the old graphite server while setting up, I now have a whisper directory with the historic metrics from the old server that I need to make available through the webapp on the new host.
I copied the dir to the new host and added an entry in the webapp local_settings.py: DATA_DIRS = ['/carbon1/whisper','/carbon2/whisper','/carbon3/whisper','/carbon4/whisper','/whisper-archive']
whisper-archive is the dir I'm talking about. Unfortunately, the data is not showing up. Am I doing something wrong or is there a better way to do this?
