OpenTSDB integration

The Sensu OpenTSDB Handler plugin is a Sensu handler that sends Sensu metrics to an OpenTSDB server via its Telnet-style API. This allows you to extract, tag, and store Sensu metrics data in an OpenTSDB database.

NOTE: The Sensu OpenTSDB 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 OpenTSDB format: extract and transform the metrics you collect from different sources in formats like Graphite, Influx, and Nagios and populate them into OpenTSDB.
  • Specify custom values for Sensu event metric points via metric tags.

To build your own workflow or integrate Sensu with existing workflows, add the Sensu OpenTSDB Handler plugin with a dynamic runtime asset from Bonsai, the Sensu asset hub. Dynamic runtime assets are shareable, reusable packages that make it easier to deploy Sensu plugins.
