I have a Dropwizard <http://www.dropwizard.io/1.0.2/docs/> based 
application running on GKE <https://cloud.google.com/container-engine/>. 
I'm already collecting lots of application specific metrics using dropwizard 
metrics support <http://metrics.dropwizard.io/3.1.0/>.

I know it can report metrics via HTTP 
JMX <http://metrics.dropwizard.io/3.1.0/getting-started/#reporting-via-jmx>], 
CSV, collectd 
<https://github.com/dropwizard/metrics/tree/master/metrics-collectd>, etc.

*I want to send these metrics to Stackdriver.* 

Three alternatives came to mind:

1. build a new metric reporter using Stackdriver Monitoring API 
2. create a new Stackdriver monitoring agent 
3. create a sidecar container that collects metrics (shared file or http 
polling) and send them to StackDriver (API ? collectd ?)

What would be the most efficient and straighforward way to achieve that ?

Any help is appreciated.
