 statsd-tg – StatsD traffig generator
══════════════════════════════════════

About
━━━━━

  statsd-tg is a traffic generator for StatsD. It generates dummy traffic that
  can be used to stress-test / benchmark StatsD implementations and possibly
  perform profiling.


Operation
━━━━━━━━━

  statsd-tg generates a set of dummy counters, timers, gauges and sets. The
  number of each type of event can be configured using command line switches.
  It then randomly triggers these events using a PRNG which distributes these
  events uniformly. This means that if you configure 50 counters, 30 timers,
  15 gauges and 5 sets, counters should make up aproximately half of the
  generated traffic, timers 30%, gauges 15% and sets 5%.


Licensing terms
━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━

  statsd-tg is licensed under the “GNU General Public License” (GPL),
  version 2. The exact licensing terms can be found in the file
  “COPYING” included in the source distribution of statsd-tg.
