Chef Handler to send metrics to Librato metrics!

##Description

This is a simple Chef report handler that reports status of a Chef run through librato.

http://wiki.opscode.com/display/chef/Exception+and+Report+Handlers

Requirements:

There are two ways to use Chef Handlers.

##Method 1

You can install the RubyGem ahead of time, and configure Chef to use them. To do so:

gem install chef-handler-librato

Then add to the configuration (/etc/chef/solo.rb for chef-solo or /etc/chef/client.rb for chef-client):

require "chef-handler-librato"
Configure the handler:
librato_handler = LibratoReporting.new

Arguments:

Email and Api_key arguments

librato_handler.email = "user@domain.com"
librato_handler.api_key = "667hhff544300096423345"

Add your handler:

report_handlers << librato_handler
exception_handlers << librato_handler

##Method 2

Use the chef_handler cookbook by Opscode. Create a recipe with the following:

Install the chef-handler-librato RubyGem during the compile phase
gem_package "chef-handler-librato" do
 action :nothing
end.run_action(:install)

or

chef_gem "chef-handler-librato" # This workd with Chef-0.10.10 or higher

Activate the handler with the chef_handler LWRP

argument_array = [
:metric_type => "counter" ,
:email => "user@domain.com",
:api_key => "c544637891cf5498f9efac33257689rtt57777894" 
]


chef_handler "LibratoReporting" do
	 source Gem.find_files.(chef/chef_handler_librato).first
	 arguments argument_array
	 action :nothing
end.run_action(:enable)
