Statix

Build Status Hex Version

Statix is an Elixir client for StatsD-compatible servers. It is focused on speed without sacrificing simplicity, completeness, or correctness.

What makes Statix the fastest library around:

  • direct sending to socket [1]
  • caching of the UDP packet header
  • connection pooling to distribute the metric sending
  • diligent usage of IO lists

[1] In contrast with process-based clients, Statix has lower memory consumption and higher throughput – Statix v1.0.0 does about 876640 counter increments per flush:

Statix

It is possible to measure that yourself.
for _ <- 1..10_000 do
  Task.start(fn ->
    for _ <- 1..10_000 do
      StatixSample.increment("sample", 1)
    end
  end)
end

Make sure you have StatsD server running to get more realistic results.

See the documentation for detailed usage information.

Installation

Add Statix as a dependency to your mix.exs file:

defp deps() do
  [{:statix, ">= 0.0.0"}]
end

Then run mix deps.get in your shell to fetch the dependencies.
