Hosted Graphite makes it easy to send and manage different types of metrics from any source.
The most common types of metrics sent to Hosted Graphite include system metrics (from an agent), custom metrics (from within your application code), and service metrics (from a 3rd party service that we integrate with).
- For information on sending metrics without an agent, e.g. custom application metrics, take a look at the examples in our Language Guide. This is a comprehensive guide for configuring custom metrics into your application code, using a socket connection.
