But, the performance metrics aren't making it into graphite. We turned on debuglog (icinga2 feature enable debuglog) and can see the perf data being properly returned, but it just ain't making it into graphite. Poking around in graphite's web app, nothing. Not there. Grafana can't see it, so we can't graph it.

* Check the debug log for “GraphiteWriter” sending the metrics
* Verify that carbon-cache actually processes the data. By default the metrics/minute are set to a pretty low default value (max_updates_per_second, max_creates_per_minute, see my tuning over at the vagrant boxes - https://github.com/Icinga/icinga-vagrant/commit/6a6c53552c74040479331566dd683e3782ec8966)

Kind regards,
