ekg-statsd: statsd backend for ekg Hackage version Build Status

This library lets you send metrics gathered by the ekg family of packages (e.g. ekg-core and ekg) to statsd. While statsd fulfills a very similar role to ekg, it supports many more backends/graphing systems (e.g. Graphite). By sending your metrics to statsd, you can have your ekg metrics appear in these systems.

Getting started

Exporting metrics to statsd is simple. Either create an empty metric store and register some metrics

import System.Metrics
import System.Remote.Monitoring.Statsd

main = do
    store <- newStore
    registerGcMetrics store
    forkStatsd defaultStatsdOptions store
    ...

or use the default metrics and metric store provided by the ekg package

import System.Remote.Monitoring
import System.Remote.Monitoring.Statsd

main = do
    handle <- forkServer "localhost" 8000
    forkStatsd defaultStatsdOptions (serverMetricStore handle)
    ...

forkStatsd starts a new thread the will periodically send your metrics to statsd using UDP.
