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.

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 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 with the Wavefront plugin’s tags flag or metric tags.
  • Keep your Graphite host and port secure with Sensu environment variables and secrets management.
