InfluxDB integration

The Sensu InfluxDB Handler plugin is a Sensu handler that sends Sensu metrics to the time-series database InfluxDB so you can store, instrument, and visualize Sensu metrics data. You can also use the Sensu InfluxDB Handler integration to create metrics from Sensu status check results for long-term storage in InfluxDB.

PRO TIP: Use the Sensu Catalog to enable this integration directly from your browser. Follow the Catalog prompts to configure the Sensu resources you need and start processing your observability data with a few clicks.


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