Add optional -p option to prepend metrics before forwarding to blueflood

Project Description
# Description

Graphite _'backend'_. Twisted-based server accepts graphite source metrics and forward them to [blueflood][blueflood-git].

Server accepts only pickle protocols metrics (as it's the only protocol used by graphite `carbon-relay`.)

It does very primitive _'caching'_: aggregates all metrics and flushes them in regular intervals.

The subsequent version of package is renamed to blueflood-carbon-forwarder.

# Dependencies

* twisted
* mock
* pytest
* txKeystone

# Installation

git clone
cd blueflood-carbon-forwarder
python install

# Running

twistd blueflood-forward
| Switch | Description | default |
| ----- | ------- | --------- |
| -e | Endpoint to listen on for pickle protocol metrics | tcp:2004 |
| -i | Metrics send interval, sec | 30.0 |
| -b | Blueflood address | http://localhost:19000 |
| -t | Tenant ID | tenant |
| -p | Prefix to be prepended to metrics name | metric_prefix |
| --ttl | TimeToLive value for metrics, sec | 86400 |
| -u | Keystone user | |
| -k | Keystone key | |
| --auth-url | Keystone token URL | |

In case you need no authentication leave `-u`/`--user` command line argument empty (default value).

# Sending metrics

To send a test metric to the twistd server you started above, you can run the following:
python tests/scripts/
Modify the script accordingly for your local testing

# Configuration

Configuration is done with command line arguments passed to twistd daemon when running:
twistd -n -l - blueflood-forward --help



Logging can be controlled using LogObserver provided along or you can use your own LogObserver

twistd --logger carbonforwarderlogging.forwarder_log_observer.get_log_observer blueflood-forward

[blueflood-git]: "blueflood"
