Hosted Graphite Integration

Hosted Graphite is monitoring as a service with useful alerting for development teams who run applications at scale. It provides its users to explore their data on open source Grafana dashboards and get alerts via integrated tools.

What does Opsgenie offer Hosted Graphite users?

Use Opsgenie’s Hosted Graphite Integration to forward Hosted Graphite alerts to Opsgenie. Opsgenie determines the right people to notify based on on-call schedules– notifies via email, text messages (SMS), phone calls, iOS & Android push notifications, and escalates alerts until the alert is acknowledged or closed.
