Sensu Go Metric Tag Enrichment

Table of Contents


Sensu Go Metric Tag Enrichment is a Sensu Go plugin for enriching metric points
with Entity metadata (e.g. entity name, labels) and
Check metadata (e.g. check name, labels), adding them as
Metric Tags. The Sensu Metric Tag Mutator is useful for adding
context to generic metrics collected from plugins that generate metrics in
formats that don't support tags (e.g. Nagios Perfdata).


Enrich Sensu Metrics with Event, Entity, and Check labels as metric tags.
