Hi Maryam,
Thanks. I was able to use MetaData to add custom values. Looks like in splunk 
7, its looking for the values as DSNames for dimensions. Is there any way to 
add a custom DSname and attach it to all the data points ?

PostCacheChain "PostCache"

<Chain "PostCache">

  <Rule "test">

    <Target "set">

      MetaData "foo" "bar"



  Target "write"


ThanksSuresh Rajagopal

Hi Suresh
You can use a filtering chain to set the metadata, Please

I need to add some custom metadata like (region/site) for all metrics from a 
host. How to achieve that?
I can in see in write_tsdb or write_riemann,there are direct options available. 
I don't see anything similar with write_http.
 <Plugin write_tsdb>    <Node "example">      Host "tsd-1.my.domain"      Port 
"4242"      HostTags "status=production"    </Node>  </Plugin>    <Plugin 
"write_riemann">    <Node "example">      Host "localhost"      Port "5555"     
 Protocol UDP      StoreRates true      AlwaysAppendDS false      TTLFactor 2.0 
   </Node>    Tag "foobar"    Attribute "foo" "bar"  </Plugin>
