Graphite, Grafana, Statsd -> Filling of Variables


I’ve got statsd hooked up to Graphite, added as a Grafana datasource. It works well, except that the variable don’t work.

For example, this doesn’t work :

aliasByNode(stats.gauges.servers.$Servers.apps.$$ActorSystems.dispatchers.$Dispatchers.actors.$Actors.mailbox-size.$MetricType, 3, 5, 9, 13, 15)

while this works :

aliasByNode(*.mailbox-size.$MetricType, 3, 5, 9, 13, 15)

I can’t find where that index is being kept, and who updates it. For some reason, it doesn’t build in this case. I want to force a rebuild, so that the dashboard dropboxes start working.

Can anyone shed a light on how this works, and how to solve the not-showing issue ?




Have you read the documentation?
