Good questions! Analytics hasn’t (yet?) had much interaction with Graphite and Grafana at
WMF. I’m on the Ops team, and the most I’ve used it for is backend system metrics. I’ve
used our Grafana instance to make a dashboard or two, but I’ve always done this manually
in the Grafana interface.
I’d recommend reaching out to the operations mailing list:

I'm working on adding performance instrumentation to the Parsoid codebase with
statsd/node-txstatsd, and then visualizing the metrics via Grafana. I'm at the stage
where I'm looking to add the metrics' namespaces and schema to the WMF Grafana
It looks like WMF has Grafana working with Graphite/Carbon as a metrics database and
ElasticSearch as the db database, where can I find the production Carbon config files to
input the settings for tmy metrics?
Also, from my research WMF's carbon data retention schema is set to '1m:1y,
10m:10y', should I default to this as my retention schema?
Note that the metrics are fired off anytime the Parsoid API is used so each datapoint
doesn't necessarily represent a minute/second/etc of data.
