statsd-parser

a streaming parser for the statsd protocol

installation

node.js

  1. install npm
  2. npm install statsd-parser
  3. var statsd_parser = require('statsd-parser');

usage

basics

var statsd_parser = require("statsd-parser")
  , parser = statsd_parser.parser()
  ;

parser.onerror = function (e) {
  // an error happened. e is the error
};

parser.onstat = function (txt, obj) {
  // got some value
};
parser.onend = function () {
  // parser stream is done, and ready to have more stuff written to it.
};

parser.write('foo.bar:1|c').close();
//
// stream usage
// takes the same options as the parser
//
var stream = require("statsd-parser").createStream(options);

stream.on("error", function (e) {
  // unhandled errors will throw, since this is a proper node
  // event emitter.
  console.error("error!", e);
  // clear the error
  this._parser.error = null;
  this._parser.resume();
})

stream.on("stat", function (txt, obj) {
  // same object as above
});
//
// pipe is supported, and it's readable/writable
// same chunks coming in also go out
//
fs.createReadStream("file.statsd")
  .pipe(stream)
  .pipe(fs.createReadStream("file-fixed.statsd"))

you also have two helper functions to see if a string is a statsd stat isStatsd and one to check extract values from a statsd string (or null if it's not statsd)

> var statsd = require('statsd-parser');
> statsd.isStatsd('a:1|c|@0.1')
true
> statsd.matchStatsd('a:1|c|@0.1')
{ stat: 'a',
  value: '1',
  type: 'c',
  sample_rate: '0.1' }
> statsd.matchStatsd('b:200|s')
{ stat: 'b',
  value: '200',
  type: 's' }
> statsd.matchStatsd('b:200|s@INVALID')
null
