Every Hosted Graphite account has an associated API Key. This API Key must be sent along with your metric data to associate it with your account. In most cases this means prefixing the key to your your metric names, e.g. YOUR-API-KEY.metricname, but have a look at the appropriate section below for full instructions.

If the metrics that you send do not appear in your dashboard composer, it usually indicates an incorrect API Key. Refer to our troubleshooting guide.
