A Ruby client for {StatsD}[]

= Installing

Bundler: gem "statsd-ruby"

= Basic Usage

# Set up a global Statsd client for a server on localhost:9125 $statsd = 'localhost', 9125

# Set up a global Statsd client for a server on IPv6 port 9125 $statsd = '::1', 9125

# Send some stats $statsd.increment 'garets' $statsd.timing 'glork', 320 $statsd.gauge 'bork', 100

# Use {#time} to time the execution of a block $statsd.time('account.activate') { @account.activate! }

# Create a namespaced statsd client and increment 'account.activate' statsd ='localhost').tap{|sd| sd.namespace = 'account'} statsd.increment 'activate'

= Testing

Run the specs with rake spec

= Performance

  • A short note about DNS: If you use a dns name for the host option, then you will want to use a local caching dns service for optimal performance (e.g. nscd).

== Contributing to statsd

  • Check out the latest master to make sure the feature hasn't been implemented or the bug hasn't been fixed yet
  • Check out the issue tracker to make sure someone already hasn't requested it and/or contributed it
  • Fork the project
  • Start a feature/bugfix branch
  • Commit and push until you are happy with your contribution
  • Make sure to add tests for it. This is important so I don't break it in a future version unintentionally.
  • Please try not to mess with the Rakefile, version, or history. If you want to have your own version, or is otherwise necessary, that is fine, but please isolate to its own commit so I can cherry-pick around it.
