Step 1. Install Wavefront Proxy
If you do not have a Wavefront proxy installed on your network and reachable from your collector, install a proxy. By default, the proxy listens on TCP port 4242 for line messages in OpenTSDB line format.
Step 2. Configure the Collector
If you have existing collectors such as Tcollector or Diamond sending data to an OpenTSDB server, change the target address from your OpenTSDB service to the Wavefront proxy.
