StatsD is a network daemon that runs on the Node.js platform.
It listens for statistics such as counters and timers sent via UDP, performs aggregation of this data, then sends it on to a configurable backend service - such as Hosted Graphite. You can use StatsD to perform such aggregation before sending your metrics to us by following this short guide.
  • Install StatsD by following the installation instructions.
  • Once installed, StatsD can then be used with a config file like this:
port: 8125,
flushInterval: 10000,
graphitePort: 2003,
graphiteHost: "",
graphite: {
legacyNamespace: false,
globalPrefix: "your-api-key-here"

Hosted StatsD

We also provide hosted StatsD if you don’t have the luxury of running a server yourself. Check out the documentation for Hosted StatsD.
