Introduction

pystatsd is a client and server implementation of Etsy's brilliant statsd server, a front end/proxy for the Graphite stats collection and graphing server.

pystatsd has been tested on python 2.5, 2.6, and 2.7.

Status

Reviewing and merging pull requests, bringing stuff up to date, now with tests!

Build Status

Usage

See statsd_test for sample usage:

from pystatsd import Client, Server

srvr = Server(debug=True)
srvr.serve()

sc = Client('example.org',8125)

sc.timing('python_test.time',500)
sc.increment('python_test.inc_int')
sc.decrement('python_test.decr_int')
sc.gauge('python_test.gauge', 42)

Building a Debian Package

To build a debian package, run dpkg-buildpackage -rfakeroot

Upstart init Script

Upstart is the daemon management system for Ubuntu.

A basic upstart script has been included for the pystatsd server. It's located under init/, and will be installed to /usr/share/doc if you build/install a .deb file. The upstart script should be copied to /etc/init/pystatsd.conf and will read configuration variables from /etc/default/pystatsd. By default the pystatsd daemon runs as user 'nobody' which is a good thing from a security perspective.

Troubleshooting

You can see the raw values received by pystatsd by packet sniffing:

$ sudo ngrep -qd any . udp dst port 8125

You can see the raw values dispatched to carbon by packet sniffing:

$ sudo ngrep -qd any stats tcp dst port 2003
