Stop, Little Graphite

Q: I have stopped reporting some counters to graphite and removed folders/counters related to them. Why graphite recreates deleted folders/counters? A: Most probably because some of your applications are still reporting removed counters. And graphite just doing what it suppose to do: storing them. So, the first thing to do you should check that changes in your applications that prevent old counters from reporting have been deployed for real. Go to instances/containers whith your application and check its source code.

Once in the evening, I’ve been helping Google to save Bunny Planet. My friend from India told me that forest pythons are extremely dangerous. He said: Nick, you a good man, but your bear fighting skills that you developed during childhood in Russia will barely help you if you will meet such a big snake as a python in a forest. So, I was looking for some docs about interaction with pythons: tips from masters, evidence of survivals.
