thanks to all!

As suggested by Winfried i followed the article on stackoverflow and I made these mods:

carbonServer(', myHostname', 10, 'dnsdist', 'main')

stopped service carbon-cache

pattern = .*
retentions = 10s:30d

removed all .wsp carbon files

started service carbon-cache

## graphite-web/local_settings.py
                DEFAULT_CACHE_DURATION = 1

restarted httpd service

Using also perSeconds() function.

Here the result -> https://ibb.co/BLxPrr9

Thanks to all!

Is there a way to get QPS and/or metrics per seconds? Or I have to manipulate data (how?)?

As others have already pointed out you'll want the derivative to find a rate rather than just the growing gauge value. E.g. by using the perSecond function like
