Welcome to Python StatsD’s documentation!

Travis-CI build status

statsd is a friendly front-end to Graphite. This is a Python client for the statsd daemon.

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 'foo.bar' in statsd/graphite.
