package statsd

import "github.com/go-kit/kit/metrics/statsd"

Package statsd provides a StatsD backend for package metrics. StatsD has no concept of arbitrary key-value tagging, so label values are not supported, and With is a no-op on all metrics.

This package batches observations and emits them on some schedule to the remote server. This is useful even if you connect to your StatsD server over UDP. Emitting one network packet per observation can quickly overwhelm even the fastest internal network.

statsd.go

type Counter Uses

type Counter struct {
    // contains filtered or unexported fields
}

Counter is a StatsD counter. Observations are forwarded to a Statsd object, and aggregated (summed) per timeseries.

func (*Counter) Add Uses

func (c *Counter) Add(delta float64)

Add implements metrics.Counter.

func (*Counter) With Uses

func (c *Counter) With(...string) metrics.Counter

With is a no-op.

type Gauge Uses

type Gauge struct {
    // contains filtered or unexported fields
}

Gauge is a StatsD gauge. Observations are forwarded to a Statsd object, and aggregated (the last observation selected) per timeseries.

func (*Gauge) Add Uses

func (g *Gauge) Add(delta float64)

Add implements metrics.Gauge.

func (*Gauge) Set Uses

func (g *Gauge) Set(value float64)

Set implements metrics.Gauge.

func (*Gauge) With Uses

func (g *Gauge) With(...string) metrics.Gauge

With is a no-op.

type Statsd Uses

type Statsd struct {
    // contains filtered or unexported fields
}

Statsd receives metrics observations and forwards them to a StatsD server. Create a Statsd object, use it to create metrics, and pass those metrics as dependencies to the components that will use them.

All metrics are buffered until WriteTo is called. Counters and gauges are aggregated into a single observation per timeseries per write. Timings are buffered but not aggregated.

To regularly report metrics to an io.Writer, use the WriteLoop helper method. To send to a StatsD server, use the SendLoop helper method.

func New Uses

func New(prefix string, logger log.Logger) *Statsd

New returns a Statsd object that may be used to create metrics. Prefix is applied to all created metrics. Callers must ensure that regular calls to WriteTo are performed, either manually or with one of the helper methods.

func (*Statsd) NewCounter Uses

func (s *Statsd) NewCounter(name string, sampleRate float64) *Counter

NewCounter returns a counter, sending observations to this Statsd object.

func (*Statsd) NewGauge Uses

func (s *Statsd) NewGauge(name string) *Gauge

NewGauge returns a gauge, sending observations to this Statsd object.

func (*Statsd) NewTiming Uses

func (s *Statsd) NewTiming(name string, sampleRate float64) *Timing

NewTiming returns a histogram whose observations are interpreted as millisecond durations, and are forwarded to this Statsd object.

func (*Statsd) SendLoop Uses

func (s *Statsd) SendLoop(c <-chan time.Time, network, address string)

SendLoop is a helper method that wraps WriteLoop, passing a managed connection to the network and address. Like WriteLoop, this method blocks until the channel is closed, so clients probably want to start it in its own goroutine. For typical usage, create a time.Ticker and pass its C channel to this method.

func (*Statsd) WriteLoop Uses

func (s *Statsd) WriteLoop(c <-chan time.Time, w io.Writer)

WriteLoop is a helper method that invokes WriteTo to the passed writer every time the passed channel fires. This method blocks until the channel is closed, so clients probably want to run it in its own goroutine. For typical usage, create a time.Ticker and pass its C channel to this method.

func (*Statsd) WriteTo Uses

func (s *Statsd) WriteTo(w io.Writer) (count int64, err error)

WriteTo flushes the buffered content of the metrics to the writer, in StatsD format. WriteTo abides best-effort semantics, so observations are lost if there is a problem with the write. Clients should be sure to call WriteTo regularly, ideally through the WriteLoop or SendLoop helper methods.

type Timing Uses

type Timing struct {
    // contains filtered or unexported fields
}

Timing is a StatsD timing, or metrics.Histogram. Observations are forwarded to a Statsd object, and collected (but not aggregated) per timeseries.

func (*Timing) Observe Uses

func (t *Timing) Observe(value float64)

Observe implements metrics.Histogram. Value is interpreted as milliseconds.

func (*Timing) With Uses

func (t *Timing) With(...string) metrics.Histogram

With is a no-op.
