dogstatsd-spring-boot-starter

MIT License Maven metadata URI Build Status

this project will easily push your metrics to a dogstatsd-agent in a spring-boot environment. For now, this project will only support Spring-Boot 1.5.x, since in 2.0.x, spring will introduce Micrometer as an abstraction for pushing metrics to various vendors.

Downloads

Add dogstatsd-spring-boot-starter as dependency.

If you use Maven, add the starter to your dependencies:

<dependency>
    <groupId>com.github.robertnetz</groupId>
    <artifactId>dogstatsd-spring-boot-starter</artifactId>
    <version>1.2</version>
</dependency>

If you use Gradle, add your dependency as follows:

repositories {
    mavenCentral()
}

dependencies {
    compile 'com.github.robertnetz:dogstatsd-spring-boot-starter:1.2'
}

Usage

As soon as the starter was added to your project, it will send your actuator metrics to your dogstatsd-agent. by default it will send to localhost:8125.

you can update the configuration by adding new keys to your application.yml as follows.

datadog:
  host: otherhost.example.com
  port: 12345

a feature of the dogstatsd is the tagging-support. to tag all your metrics statically with a provided set of tags, you have to specify them like this:

datadog:
  tags:
    - foo
    - bar
    - bam
    - baz

if you like to have a static prefix to all your metrics, you can do it like that:

datadog:
  prefix: superapp

you also can disable the metrics export by configuration:

datadog:
  enabled: false

You might not want to export spring actuators' SystemPublicMetrics, then you'll have to disable them explicitly by:

datadog:
  includeActuatorMetrics: false

Metric name sanitization

Some libraries you use might be recording metrics with : in their names. These are currently not supported by the java-dogstatsd-client and cause errors. There are a few strategies available:

datadog:
  nameSanitizer: raise  # default

The default strategy is raise, and will raise an exception when a : character is encountered in a metric name. This will allow you to quickly fix any code under your control which reported these metrics.

Other available strategies are:

  • escape: replace any : with a -
  • ignore: silently skip reporting the metric with the illegal name
