Quickly, to use:

>>> import statsd
>>> c = statsd.StatsClient('localhost', 8125)
>>> c.incr('foo')  # Increment the 'foo' counter.
>>> c.timing('stats.timed', 320)  # Record a 320ms 'stats.timed'.

You can also add a prefix to all your stats:

>>> import statsd
>>> c = statsd.StatsClient('localhost', 8125, prefix='foo')
>>> c.incr('bar')  # Will be 'foo.bar' in statsd/graphite.


The easiest way to install statsd is with pip!

You can install from PyPI:

$ pip install statsd

$ pip install -e git+https://github.com/jsocol/pystatsd#egg=statsd

Or from source:
