metrics-statsd

Statsd reporter for codahale/metrics.

Quick Start

The 3.x version of the Metrics library now uses the builder pattern to construct reporters. Below is an example of how to create a StatsdReporter and report out metrics every 15 seconds.

 final Statsd statsd = new Statsd("localhost", port);

 StatsdReporter reporter StatsdReporter.forRegistry(registry)
         .prefixedWith("foo")
         .convertDurationsTo(TimeUnit.MILLISECONDS)
         .convertRatesTo(TimeUnit.SECONDS)
         .filter(MetricFilter.ALL)
         .build(statsd);
reporter.start(15, TimeUnit.SECONDS);

If you are using Dropwizard (0.7.x +), there is an easy way to configure a Metrics reporter to be used directly from your YAML configuration file. See (https://github.com/dropwizard/dropwizard/tree/master/dropwizard-metrics-graphite) for an example of how to create a ReporterFactory.
