Graphite integration

The Sensu Graphite Handler plugin is a Sensu handler that sends Sensu metrics to the time-series database Graphite so you can store, instrument, and visualize Sensu metrics data.

NOTE: The Sensu Graphite Handler plugin is an example of Sensu’s time-series and long-term event storage integrations. To find more integrations, search Bonsai, the Sensu asset hub.


  • Transform metrics to Graphite format: extract and transform the metrics you collect from different sources in formats like Influx, Nagios, and OpenTSDB and populate them into Graphite.
  • Specify custom values for Sensu event metric points via metric tags.
  • Keep your Graphite host and port secure with Sensu environment variables and secrets management.
