+# resque-statsd
Resque Statsd is a Resque plugin that will collect and send data samples from your Resque Jobs. It samples 4 statistics for any Job for which the plugin extends, enqueue count, completion count, failure count, and the time to process. It will monitor for each specific job, in addition to the totals for all jobs (not including timing stats)
Tests on the way, but being used in production already
