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.
git clone https://github.com/rackerlabs/blueflood-carbon-forwarder.git
python setup.py install

# Sending metrics
To send a test metric to the twistd server you started above, you can run the following:
Modify the script accordingly for your local testing
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
