StatsD output for Artillery stats

This Artillery plugin allows you to publish the stats produced by Artillery CLI to StatsD in real-time.



npm install -g artillery-plugin-statsd - if you've installed Artillery globally

npm install artillery-plugin-statsd otherwise.


Enable the plugin by adding it in your test script's config.plugins section:

  "config": {
    // ...
    "plugins": {
      "statsd": {
        "host": "localhost",
        "port": 8125,
        "prefix": "artillery"
  // ...

host, port, and prefix are optional; the values above are the defaults.

Published metrics

By default, all stats from artillery are reported. This includes any custom stats you may have in place. As of artillery@1.5.0-17, the metrics you can expect to see are as follows.

  • scenariosCreated
  • scenariosCompleted
  • requestsCompleted
  • latency.min
  • latency.max
  • latency.median
  • latency.p95
  • latency.p99
  • rps.count
  • rps.mean
  • scenarioDuration.min
  • scenarioDuration.max
  • scenarioDuration.median
  • scenarioDuration.p95
  • scenarioDuration.p99
  • scenarioCounts.0, scenarioCounts.0 etc
  • codes.200, codes.301 etc
  • errors.ECONNREFUSED, errors.ETIMEDOUT etc
  • matches
  • concurrency
  • pendingRequests

Metrics will be added or removed based on what artillery decides to send.

If a metric is null or cannot be resolved to a number, the default value of 0 is sent. You can change the default value in the configuration by passing in the property default. Example:

"default": 100000 - Metrics are sent with gauges so avoid negative numbers.

Metrics can be skipped by passing in an additional configuration property skipList. Skip list values can look like the following:

  • "skipList": "scenarioDuration" - would skip all scenarioDuration metrics
  • "skipList": "latency.max" - would skip only the latency.max metric
  • "skipList": "scenarioDuration, latency.max" - a comma separated list can be used to pass in multiple values.

Using with Librato

This plugin can be used to publish metrics to Librato:

  1. Install StatsD with:

npm install statsd

  1. Add Librato backend to StatsD:

cd /path/to/statsd npm install statsd-librato-backend

Enable the backend in your StatsD config:

  librato: {
    email:  "",
    token:  "a161e2bc22b1bdd0cfe90412token10498token22dd52cat792doge1ab5a1d32"
  backends: ['statsd-librato-backend']
  1. Run StatsD and use Artillery with this plugin.
