Wavefront integration

The Sensu Wavefront Handler plugin is a Sensu handler that sends Sensu metrics to Wavefront via a proxy, which allows you to store, instrument, and visualize Sensu metrics data in an Wavefront database.

NOTE: The Sensu Wavefront 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 Wavefront format: extract and transform the metrics you collect from different sources in formats like Graphite, OpenTSDB, Nagios, and Influx and populate them into Wavefront.
  • Specify additional tags to include when processing metrics either using the Wavefront plugin’s --tags flag or via metric tags.
  • Keep your Wavefront host and port secure with Sensu environment variables and secrets management.
