Sensu Go Graphite Handler Plugin


The Sensu Graphite Handler is a Sensu Event Handler that sends metrics to the time series database Graphite. Sensu can collect metrics using check output metric extraction or the StatsD listener. Those collected metrics
pass through the event pipeline, allowing Sensu to deliver the metrics to the configured metric event handlers. This Graphite handler will allow you to store, instrument, and visualize the metric data from Sensu.



Usage examples

  -h, --help            help for sensu-go-graphite-handler
  -H, --host string     The hostname or address of the graphite server (default "localhost")
  -n, --no-prefix       Do not include *any* prefixes, use the bare
  -p, --port uint       The port number to which to connect on the graphite server (default 2003)
  -P, --prefix string   The prefix to use in graphite for these metrics (default "sensu")

If you're using an earlier version of sensuctl, you can download the asset definition from this project's Bonsai asset index page or releases or create an executable script from this source.

From the local path of the sensu-go-graphite-handler repository:

go build -o /usr/local/bin/sensu-go-graphite-handler main.go
