For defining the storage methods a define is in place:

 graphite::carbon::cache::storage { 'default_1min_for_1day':
   pattern    => '.*'
   retentions => '60s:1d'
 }

An other of sequence can be given with the order => directive.

web

For the graphite-web there are 2 variables:

 web_dashboard_config_file => "puppet:///modules/${module_name}/path/to/your/dashboard.conf"
 web_local_settings_file   => "puppet:///modules/${module_name}/path/to/your/local_settings.py"

whisper

Whisper is the storage for all the data. This one has no special configuration.

assumptions

Certain assumptions have been made with this module:

  1. carbon, graphite-web & whisper are available through a repository.
  2. when no config files are specified, the default ones are used.
  3. All 3 applications are standard installed.
  4. For the 3 processes from carbon; unless activated they are not running.
