The Sensu Wavefront Handler is a Sensu Event Handler that sends metrics to the SaaS time-series
database Wavefront via a proxy. 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 normalized metrics to the configured metric event handlers. This Wavefront
handler will allow you to store, instrument, and visualize the metric data from Sensu.
