Jobs queue speeds and rates, Executors availability, Nodes status, Jenkins and JVM resource usage.

Exposes the Jackson 2 API to other Jenkins plugins: https://wiki.jenkins-ci.org/display/JENKINS/Jackson2+API+Plugin Exposes the Codahale Dropwizard Metrics API: https://wiki.jenkins-ci.org/display/JENKINS/Metrics+Plugin Report metrics to Graphite: https://wiki.jenkins-ci.org/display/JENKINS/Metrics+Graphite+Plugin
After plugins reboot Jenkins and go to “Jenkins > Manage Jenkins > Configure System”, make sure to define your Graphite hostname, port and for prefix use “jenkins” to make it work almost out of the box ;)
