GraphiteWriter not sending any data from icinga

Hey there, I’m facing an issue with the graphite feature of icinga2.  From my perspective graphite isn’t getting any data from icinga2.

Expected Behavior
The installed Graphite feature of icinga2 should save the data automatically in the database, so I can display it with IcingaWeb2

Current Behavior
The GraphiteWriter of Icinga2 isn’t doing anything. If I look in the icinga log I can see three entries from the GraphiteWriter whitch say:

[2018-11-15 14:28:25 +0100] information/GraphiteWriter: 'graphite' started.
[2018-11-15 14:28:25 +0100] information/GraphiteWriter: Finished reconnecting to Graphite in 0.000283003 second(s).

And later on:

[2018-11-15 14:28:35 +0100] information/WorkQueue: #7 (GraphiteWriter, graphite) items: 0, rate: 0.0166667/s (1/min 1/5min 1/15min);

Graphite feature is enabled in icinga2 as you can see. I rebooted and restarted the services, but Graphite wont get the data from icinga2.

graphite.conf in the enabled-features folder is the default one:

object GraphiteWriter "graphite" {
  host = ""
  port = 2003

I checked the database config twice for user, password and database, but they are correct.

I’m getting the exact same issue with influxdb and the influxdWriter and couldn’t solve it so I later removed it and switched to graphite, what makes me even more wondering whats going on…

Steps to Reproduce (for bugs)

I know it’s a german page, but I did exactly what is listet here:

It’s just the very basic stuff for graphite: configuring the default graphite installation to get it work properly, but I’m still wondering why there’s no error message in the icinga log. It’s just saying that there’s no information transferred from icinga to graphite (If you know what I mean :))

Your Environment
Icinga2 Version: r2.10.1-1 on CentOS 7

Enabled features: api checker command debuglog graphite ido-mysql mainlog notification

(Also tried the features perfdata and influx but it didn’t work either, even though perfdata should’t be used for both influxdb and graphite it just generates a lot of files :D)


I checked that and I’ve set up my test environment with the Icinga Director and made sure that the switch “Process Performance Data” was enabled in at least a few services.

Everything else works perfect: Data is send from the windows servers and displayed correctly in IcingaWeb2, but every 5 minutes I get the messages:

(GraphiteWriter, graphite) items: 0, rate: 0.333333/s (20/min 106/5min 224/15min);
(InfluxdbWriter, influxdb) items: 0, rate: 0.333333/s (20/min 106/5min 224/15min);

I noticed the rates vary a little bit, but always with 0 items and I can’t see anything in the database. Also the graph in IcingaWeb says “no data”.

I can give you the code used for the Service teamplate in Icinga Director:

I’m using the “load-windows” check command for this service, but there other services with for example the “disk-windows” check command as well. I’m only using the check commands provided with the default nagios-plugins-all package mentioned at the official icinga installation docs.

I enabled perfdata in other services like ping4 ping6 or disk as well, but still no data is saved.
Just to be sure: I only have to set enabled “process performance data” in the icinga director on yes or do that manually and add

enable_perfdata = true


I opened an issue on github herefirst so you can check that as well.
