statsd-tags 3.2.1.post1

A simple statsd client with DogTag-compatible tag support.

statsd is a friendly front-end to Graphite. This is a Python client for the statsd daemon. More specifically, this is a fork of jsocol’s pystatsd client, with the addition of support for DogTag-compatible tags.

Quickly, to use:

>>> import statsd
>>> c = statsd.StatsClient('localhost', 8125)
>>> c.incr('foo')  # Increment the 'foo' counter.
>>> c.timing('stats.timed', 320)  # Record a 320ms 'stats.timed'.

You can also add a prefix to all your stats:

>>> import statsd
>>> c = statsd.StatsClient('localhost', 8125, prefix='foo')
>>> c.incr('bar')  # Will be '' in statsd/graphite.

DogTag-compatible tags are supported, as well:

>>> import statsd
>>> c = statsd.StatsClient('localhost', 8125)
>>> c.gauge('baz', 42, tags=['production', 'fqdn': ''])


The easiest way to install statsd is with pip!

You can install from PyPI:

$ pip install statsd-tags

Or GitHub:

$ pip install -e git+

Or from source:

$ cd statsd-tags
