Hosted Graphite provides a AppFog add-on! Installing the add-on is simple - Open your app, select Add-ons, scroll to Hosted Graphite and click Install. That’s it!
You can now begin to send metric messages (see: The Metric Data Format) to Hosted Graphite from your application.
Accessing the API Key within your app¶
Now that the add-on has been setup, the Hosted Graphite API Key will be available via the environment variable HOSTEDGRAPHITE_APIKEY. See the appropriate language snippet below for an example on how to access this variable in your app.
apikey = ENV['HOSTEDGRAPHITE_APIKEY']
