Using this setup we can accept Ganglia metrics over UDP from Hadoop,
convert using multiple parallel processes the metrics to Graphite
format in and submit the converted metrics in batches to Graphite.
I’m planning to add more functionality to MetricFactory. Currently
it can tackle mod_gearman and Ganglia data. Using the examples in
this article you should be able to setup your own MetricFactory
based setups relatively easy.
