Grafana Enterprise Metrics comes with a full fledged Graphite API which allows users to ingest Graphite metrics and query them using the Graphite query language.
To use this functionality a few additional services need to be deployed which act as translation proxies in front of a standard Grafana Enterprise Metrics deployment, this section of the documentation explains how to deploy and how to use it.
This part of the documentation intentionally avoids using the word “resolution” because it can lead to confusion because a “high” resolution might mean that more details are shown which would imply that the interval of the shown points is low, but it could also mean that the interval of the shown points is “high” which would result in less details being shown. Instead of using the word “resolution” only the word “interval” is used, a “high interval” means that less details are visible and a “low interval” means that more details are shown.
