StatsD AMQP publisher backend

Overview

This is a pluggable backend for StatsD, which publishes stats to an AMQP topic exchange instead of graphite.

Installation

npm install statsd-amqp-backend

Configuration

You have to give basic information about your AMQP server to use:

{
  backends: [ "statsd-amqp-backend" ]
, amqp: {
    host: 'localhost'
  , port: 5672
  , login: 'guest'
  , password: 'guest'
  , vhost: '/'
  , defaultExchange: ''
  , messageFormat: 'graphite' // can be 'graphite' or 'json'
  , ssl: {
      enabled : false
    , keyFile : '/path/to/key/file'
    , certFile : '/path/to/cert/file'
    , caFile : '/path/to/cacert/file'
    , rejectUnauthorized : false
    }
  }
}

AMQP

When using messageFormat: 'json', at flush time the entire metrics payload will be sent to the defaultExchange using the routing key json_payload, with contentType application/json. Example:

{"counters":{"my-metrics.bad_lines_seen":0,"my-metrics.packets_received":0},"gauges":{},"timers":{},"timer_counters":{},"sets":{},"counter_rates":{"my-metrics.bad_lines_seen":0,"my-metrics.packets_received":0},"timer_data":{},"pctThreshold":[90],"statsd_metrics":{"processing_time":0}}

When using messageFormat: 'graphite', at flush time each metric will be sent individually to the defaultExchange using the metric's key name as the routing key, with contentType text/graphite. Example:

stats.counters.my-metrics.bad_lines_seen.rate 0 1387255600
stats.counters.my-metrics.bad_lines_seen.count 0 1387255600
stats.my-metrics.numStats 4 1387255600
stats.my-metrics.processing_time 0 1387255600
