Since Proxmox VE 4.0, it's possible to send metrics stats (host,vms,storage) to external metrics servers
in addition to embedded Proxmox VE rrd graphs.
Previous to pve-manager 4.2-7 the server address MUST be FQDN (host/dns names) since 4.2-7 you may also use IPv4 and IPv6 addresses.
Currently supported:
*graphite (http://graphite.wikidot.com/)
*influxdb 0.9 (https://influxdb.com/)
You can generate graphs && dashboard with grafana: http://grafana.org/
== Graphite plugin configuration ==
create a file
      server yourgraphiteserver.fqdn
      port 2003
      path proxmox
Your graphite carbon server need to listen to udp
== Influxdb 0.9 plugin configuration ==
create a file
      server yourinfluxdbserver.fqdn
      port 8089
You need to configure your influxdbserver to listen to an udp port.
In this example we defined port 8089 with a database "proxmox"
influxdb.conf (on your influxdb server)
  enabled = true
  bind-address = ""
  database = "proxmox"
  batch-size = 1000
  batch-timeout = "1s"
