 statsd-tg – StatsD traffic generator


  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.


  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%.
