Posting metrics to CloudWatch

Hello,

Has anyone been able to send Druid metrics to AWS CloudWatch? If not, would anyone have some recommendations on creating a custom Emitter?

Dan

Hey Dan,

I am currently working on an emitter for StatsD. It will handle the pre-aggregation of Druid’s high dimension metrics, and can export to a number of different back-ends (CloudWatch included - https://github.com/camitz/aws-cloudwatch-statsd-backend)

It would be possible to write an emitter that sends directly to CloudWatch, but it will have to deal with the issues of consuming metrics directly from druid (i.e. very high cardinality metrics).

Excellent, I’ll test it out, and comment on how it works out. Thanks!

Great thanks!
