Metric collection agent for Numenta Rogue showcase application

Numenta Rogue
=============

Metrics collection agent for the Numenta Rogue showcase application and
consists of two primary components: A long-running metric collection agent,
which periodically polls various metrics and records the results to a local
database, and a separate process for forwarding metrics to a Grok server for
analysis.

Each metric collection agent is executed in a continuously-running gevent
Greenlet, with a pre-determined wait interval between samples. Each sample
is cached locally in a dedicated RRDTool database. Individual metrics are
implemented as subclasses of `avogadro.agent.AvogadroAgent()`, and must
implement a `collect()` method, which returns the metric value.

The `rogue-forward` process fetches metric data from the individual RRDTool
databases using the `rrdtool fetch` command, and sends the metric data using
the Grok Custom Metric API. Each time the `rogue-forward` process is
executed, the most recent timestamp is cached locally, and is used as a
starting point for subsequent requests.

Usage
-----

Install RRDTool::

brew install rrdtool

Install in development mode::

python setup.py develop --install-dir=... --script-dir=...

Start key-counter with nohup::

nohup rogue-keycounter > rogue-keys.stdout 2> rogue-keys.stderr < /dev/null &

Start metric collection agent with nohup::

nohup rogue-agent --prefix=var/db/ --interval=300 --hearbeat=600 > rogue-agent.stdout 2> rogue-agent.stderr < /dev/null &

Forward pending metric data to Grok once::

rogue-forward --server=https://localhost --prefix=var/db

Sample crontab entry::

* * * * * PATH=$PATH:/usr/local/bin PYTHONPATH=... .../rogue-forward --server=... --prefix=... > .../rogue-forward.stdout 2> .../rogue-forward.stderr < /dev/null

Export to local CSV
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

All metric data is written to a local round-robin database, which only retains
the two most recent weeks of data at any given moment in time. Should you want
the data exported to CSV, use the `rogue-export` utility::

rogue-export --prefix=var/db

The exporter keeps track of the position of a given metric, so you can run
`rogue-export` as frequently as you like, and the `.csv` files in `var/db/`,
will be updated accordingly. i.e. you can periodically sync the round-robin
database to a csv file in `var/db/`
