Supermarket Belongs to the Community

Supermarket belongs to the community. While Chef has the responsibility to keep it running and be stewards of its functionality, what it does and how it works is driven by the community. The chef/supermarket repository will continue to be where development of the Supermarket application takes place. Come be part of shaping the direction of Supermarket by opening issues and pull requests or by joining us on the Chef Mailing List.

graphite_reporting_handler Cookbook


A Chef Cookbook that installs & configures a report handler for sending Chef run metrics to Graphite. If you have the system_packages Ohai plugin installed, this handler will also send package metrics to Graphite.


The chef_handler Cookbook.


This cookbook uses the following attributes to configure how it is installed.

  • node['graphite_reporting_handler']['graphite_host'] - Host where Graphite's Carbon daemon is accepting metrics. Default: localhost
  • node['graphite_reporting_handler']['graphite_port'] - Port where Graphite's Carbon daemon is accepting metrics. Default: 2003
  • node['graphite_reporting_handler']['graphite_protocol'] - Protocol for communicating with Graphite's Carbon daemon. Default: tcp
  • node['graphite_reporting_handler']['metric_path'] - Metric path, or queue. Default: chef.#{node.chef_environment}.node.#{node['hostname']}
  • node['graphite_reporting_handler']['metric_prefix'] - Prepended to the metric_path, useful for Hosted Graphite's API Key. Default: nil


  1. Set Attributes for your Graphite Carbon host:
    {'graphite_reporting_handler' => {'graphite_host' => ''}}
  1. Add the graphite_reporting_handler to your Run List:


  1. Look at graphs, impress your friends, go home early?

Credit & Inspiration

The original Graphite Reporting Handler was written by Ian Meyer, and was converted into a Cookbook by Peter Donald, et al. The original Reporting Handler was scrubbed of the graphite-simple Gem requirement by the team at Etsy. This Cookbook was derived from these sources and adds UDP and metric_prefix support.
