Stackdriver Pluggable Custom Metrics

This is a pluggable system for Stackdriver to handle custom metrics.

Requirements

I've tried to keep the requirements fairly light, you need Python 2.6 installed on a Linux machine and Factor. It's also assumed that you're on Amazon Web Services.

Usage

stackdriver.py --key <YOUR API KEY>

How it works

stackdriver.py will execute files in the ./modules/ directory and will attempt to send the resulting output of those files to Stackdriver.

This is nice because it does it in one bulk update instead of sending multiple single updates.

Your custom modules

I've included a sendmail.py example however you can create a module in whatever language you'd like, even shell scripts. It just needs to output (to stdout) a JSON encoded string that includes the following fields: 'instance': 'name': 'value': 'collected_at':

Example: {'instance': 'i-18bc2e2c', 'name': 'Mail Queue Size', 'value': 0, 'collected_at': 1379719066}

Note

I am in no way affiliated with Stackdriver. Also this software has no warranty and may very well make your system catch on fire, explode and destroy the fabric of the universe.
