How to import custom variables from icinga to graphite/grafana

Hi folks,

we would like to see some custom variables in graphite which we set via icingaweb.
With these we could put more filters via grafana for sorting and filter the serverlist.
(for example the customer variable)
Do you guys know, how to “activate” or achieve that?

best regards


Graphite itself doesn’t allow to store anything else than raw numbers for metric values. 1.1 or so added the tags database being optional, but this isn’t implemented in Icinga yet - needs a proper design and funding.
