Usage
-------------
See statsd_test for sample usage:
from pystatsd import Client, Server
srvr = Server(debug=True)
srvr.serve()
sc = Client('example.org',8125)
sc.timing('python_test.time',500)
sc.increment('python_test.inc_int')
sc.decrement('python_test.decr_int')
Building a Debian Package
-------------
To build a debian package, run `dpkg-buildpackage -rfakeroot`
Upstart init Script
-------------
Upstart is the daemon management system for Ubuntu, and it's really great!
A basic upstart script has been included for the pystatd server. It's located
under init/, and will be installed to /usr/share/doc if you build/install a
.deb file. The upstart script should be copied to /etc/init/pystatd.conf and
will read configuration variables from /etc/default/pystatd. By default the
pystatd daemon runs as user 'nobody' which is a good thing from a security
perspective.
