Instrumental Python Agent
Instrumental is a application monitoring platform built for developers who want a better understanding of their production software. Powerful tools, like the Instrumental Query Language, combined with an exploration-focused interface allow you to get real answers to complex questions, in real-time.
This agent supports custom metric monitoring for Python applications, compatible with Python 2 and Python 3. It provides high-data reliability at high scale, without ever blocking your process or causing an exception.
pip install --upgrade instrumental_agent
easy_install --upgrade instrumental_agent
from instrumental_agent import Agent i = Agent("PROJECT_API_TOKEN", enabled=True)
You'll probably want something like the above, only enabling the agent in production mode so you don't have development and production data writing to the same place. Or you can setup two projects, so that you can verify stats in one, and release them to production in another.
Now you can begin to use Instrumental to track your application.
i.gauge('load', 1.23) # value at a point in time i.increment('signups') # increasing value, think "events" i.time('query_time', lambda: Post.find(1)) # time a method call i.time_ms('query_time', lambda: Post.find(1)) # prefer milliseconds?
Note: For your app's safety, the agent is meant to isolate your app from any problems our service might suffer. If it is unable to connect to the service, it will discard data after reaching a low memory threshold.
Want to track an event (like an application deploy, or downtime)? You can capture events that are instantaneous, or events that happen over a period of time.
i.notice('Jeffy deployed rev ef3d6a') # instantaneous event i.notice('Testing socket buffer increase', time.time(), timedelta(minutes=20)) # an event with a duration
