Simple whisper file server over HTTP.

This project aims to be a replacement of the graphite web API used on carbon stores to retrieve the whisper data for viewing.

The main reason to build a replacement is performance. This server only supports the find and render calls that return raw data (e.g. no rendered images).

carbonserver understands the /metrics/find and /render URLs sent by the carbon web-frontend to the stores (their web-frontend), and responds in a compatible way. As such, it can be used as a drop-in replacement. When used in combination with carbonzipper, carbonserver uses a more optimal communication protocol that puts less strains on Go’s memory usage and garbage collector.
