To integrate Network Hub Hardware and Graphite with your monitoring system, reach out to MetricFire. Book a demo with the MetricFire team to discuss integrating Network Hub Hardware and Graphite and how that can support your monitoring system.
Simply put, a hub is a network hardware device that can connect multiple computer networking devices together. This process involves making multiple ethernet devices act as a single network segment. A Hub can also be known as an Ethernet hub, network hub, active hub, repeater hub, or multiport repeater. If configured, a hub can be used with both digital and analog data.
A Hub has multiple input and output (I/O) ports. If a signal is introduced at an input of any port, it then appears at the output of every other port (except the original incoming). Unless you have very old installations or specialized applications, Hubs are not commonly used. They have largely been replaced by network switches.
Graphite is an open source enterprise-ready time-series database. It helps you store, query and visualize your time-series data from systems, websites, devices, servers or all of them together at the same time. As it is open-source, Graphite is free to use. However, with open source software, there are maintenance, scalability, and team sharing issues. Installing Graphite can become quite an inconvenient and lengthy experience.
Hosted Graphite is offered by MetricFire. MetricFire's Hosted Graphite is maintained, updated, and hosted for ultimate ease of use. This means setup is convenient and quick, while it also addresses the scalability and team sharing issues found with open source Graphite.
Graphite is great for it's high performance, simple architecture and easy-to-use features. It has proven it's usage among the top organizations in the corporate world.

MetricFire is a full-scale platform that offers infrastructure, system, and application monitoring using a suite of open-source monitoring tools. The platform allows you to use either Prometheus- or Graphite-as-a-Service and have your metrics displayed on aesthetically-pleasing Grafana dashboards.
MetricFire offers its users a complete ecosystem of end-to-end infrastructure monitoring, which is made up of three of the most popular open-source monitoring software services: Prometheus, Graphite, and Grafana. As well, plugins for a number of 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, we also do application monitoring and business intelligence.
Through this hosted environment, MetricFire works to boost the unique features of the open source projects to give you more functionality than the original products. Below are some of the MetricFire features at a glance:
Cloud and on Premise Monitoring
Whether to use Prometheus or Graphite is a great question. We’ve looked deeper into this decision in our blog article, Prometheus or Graphite. While Prometheus is a newer software that has a multidimensional data structure, Graphite is robust and sufficient. 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.
