To integrate Amazon EBS and Graphite APIs with your monitoring system, please reach out to MetricFire. Book a demo with the MetricFire team to discuss integrating Amazon EBS and Graphite APIs and how that can support your monitoring system.
Amazon Elastic Block Store (EBS) is a block-storage service designed for Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2). It is designed to scale for and support both throughput and transaction-intensive workloads. Amazon EBS is used to deploy a wide range of workloads, including relational and non-relational databases, enterprise applications, big data analytics engines, file systems, containerized applications, and media workflows.
Amazon EBS the perfect block-storage service for mission-critical systems and can easily scale to petabytes of data.
EBS volumes behave like raw, unformatted block devices that you can mount as devices. You can install a file system on top of your EBS volumes or use them in any way you would use any other block device. You can use EBS volumes as the primary storage for file systems, databases, or any applications requiring access to raw, unformatted, block-level storage. It's also useful for database-style applications that rely on random reads and writes.
Amazon EBS is a great tool for testing, allowing you to duplicate and test your development or production environments. Plus, you can copy Amazon Machine Images (AMIs) or EBS Snapshots to run applications in different AWS regions, allowing you to backup data across geographies and help you reduce data loss, and increase data recovery times.
Amazon Elastic Block Store sends data points to Amazon CloudWatch, including volume metrics and fast snapshot restore metrics, which is where a MetricFire integration comes to the fore.
With Metricfire, you can turbocharge your Amazon Elastic Block Store monitoring services. By integrating Amazon CloudWatch with the Metricfire platform, you can display your metrics on aesthetically pleasing dashboards. MetricFire's advanced filtering lets you choose only the data views you want to see and discard the rest. You can also set up simple rules to discard data you no longer keep, plus receive alerts via email or Slack when your block store is doing something it shouldn't.
Graphite-API is a tool designed to fetch metrics from time series databases such as Whisper or Cyanite. Once it has gathered the metrics, it then renders graphs or JSON data out of each of these time series. Graphite-API is an API-based alternative to Graphite-web, so it does not have any built-in dashboard. Instead, this AP server tool replicates Graphite-web behavior, and works with the abundant Graphite dashboard applications available on the market such as Grafana.
The Graphite-API application comes with several improvements over Graphite-web:
Graphite API does not come with any web or graphical interfaces. This feature gap is where MetricFire comes into its own.
With our Hosted Graphite solution, we've taken the best parts of open-source Graphite and supercharged them. We also added everything missing in Graphite: a built-in agent, team accounts, granular dashboard permissions, and integrations with other technologies and services like AWS, Heroku, logging tools, and more. Hosted Graphite's advanced filtering lets you choose only the data views you want to see, so you can discard the rest. You can also set up simple rules to discard data you no longer keep, plus receive alerts via email or the Slack messaging platform.
MetricFire is a full-scale platform that provides infrastructure, system, and application monitoring using a suite of open-source monitoring tools. We enable you to use Hosted Graphite and aesthetic custom dashboards to visualize your metrics so you can understand what is happening.
MetricFire offers users a complete ecosystem of end-to-end infrastructure monitoring, comprised of popular open-source monitoring software services: Graphite and popular dashboards. Plugins for many other open-source projects are preconfigured, such as StatsD, collectd, and Kubernetes. You get all these within a hosted environment as a single product. Not only does MetricFire fit well into the infrastructure monitoring use-case, such as network monitoring and server monitoring, but we also do application monitoring and business intelligence.
Through this hosted environment, MetricFire boosts the unique features of open-source projects to give you more functionality than the original products. Below are some of the MetricFire features at a glance:
The key thing to remember is that Hosted Graphite by MetricFire is more than just Graphite. Our Hosted Graphite product actually adds data dimensionality and better data storage.

Why thousands of engineers choose us:
Vendor lock-in's not our thing. We’re believers in you still owning your data, so you can request a full export at any time. That means you get all the benefits of an open-source tool, but with the security and stability of a SaaS tool.
“We now have over ten times the amount of metrics we started with, and on different accounts. One of the great things about MetricFire is that scaling to support this increase has been hassle-free, requiring no additional work on our side.”
Maxime Audet, Cloud-Ops Team Lead, CoveoRead customer story
Save valuable engineering time and stick within your budget. We're known for our predictable and transparent pricing so it's easy to keeps costs under control.
“Building and managing an on-premise installation at this scale would require a lot of engineer time, especially in the first year...we use this engineering time to work on initiatives closer to our core business”
Jim Davies, Head of DevOps, MoneySuperMarket.comRead customer story
Transparency is at the root of how we operate: from pricing to postmortems we're open about how we do things. We even publish our internal system metrics to our public status page.
“There’s complete transparency with everything MetricFire do which means we can accurately predict what we’ll be spending and comfortably keep within our budget.”
