- statsd (recommended!)
and later maybe more, like go-metrics
- make it easy to switch between libraries.
- some libraries just take in string arguments for gauge names etc, but it's nicer to have variables per object for robustness, especially when used in multiple places, and gives a central overview.
- allows you to set deleteGauges and deleteStats in your statsd servers ( a good thing for stateless servers), cause we will automatically keep a gauge sending.
