Sending graphite metrics 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.

# Dependencies

  • twisted

  • mock

  • pytest

  • txKeystone

# Installation

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

# Running

twistd blueflood-forward

# Configuration

Configuration is done with command line arguments passed to twistd daemon when running:

twistd -n -l - blueflood-forward –help

#Logging

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

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 |
–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).
