Net::Graphite - Interface to Graphite
use Net::Graphite; my $graphite = Net::Graphite->new( # except for host, these hopefully have reasonable defaults, so are optional host => '127.0.0.1', port => 2003, trace => 0, # if true, copy what's sent to STDERR proto => 'tcp', # can be 'udp' timeout => 1, # timeout of socket connect in seconds fire_and_forget => 0, # if true, ignore sending errors path => 'foo.bar.baz', # optional, use when sending single values ); # send a single value, # need to set path in the call to new # or call $graphite->path('some.path') beforehand $graphite->send(6); # default time is "now" -OR- # send a metric with named parameters $graphite->send( path => 'foo.bar.baz', value => 6, time => time(), # time defaults to "now" ); -OR- # send text with one line per metric, following the plaintext protocol $graphite->send(data => $string_with_one_line_per_metric); -OR- # send a data structure, default transformer for HoH: epoch => key => key => key .... => value $graphite->send(data => $hash); # send a data structure, providing your own plaintext transformer # (the callback's only arg is the data structure, return a text string one metric on each line) $graphite->send(data => $whatever, transformer => \&make_whatever_into_plaintext);
Interface to Graphite which doesn't depend on AnyEvent.
Explicitly close the socket to the graphite server. Not normally needed, because the socket will close when the $graphite object goes out of scope.
Get an open a socket to the graphite server, either the currently connected one or, if not already connected, a new one. Not normally needed.
Set the default path (corresponds to 'path' argument to new), for use when sending single values.
Normally all you need to use. See the SYNOPSIS. (FIXME)
If you pass a 'data' argument to send, use this coderef to transform from the data structure to plaintext. The coderef receives the data structure as its only parameter. There are default transformers for certain reftypes.
