NAME

Mojolicious::Plugin::Statsd - Emit to Statsd, easy!

SYNOPSIS

  # Mojolicious
  $self->plugin('Statsd');

  # Mojolicious::Lite
  plugin 'Statsd';

  # Anywhere you have Mojo helpers available
  $app->stats->increment('frobs.adjusted');

  # It's safe to pass around if need be
  my $stats = $app->stats;

  # Only sample half of the time
  $stats->increment('frobs.discarded', 0.5);

  # Time a code section
  $stats->timing('frobnicate' => sub {
    # section to be timed
  });

  # Or do it yourself
  $stats->timing('frobnicate', $milliseconds);

  # Save repetition
  my $jobstats = $app->stats->with_prefix('my-special-process.');

  # This becomes myapp.my-special-process.foo
  $jobstats->increment('foo');

DESCRIPTION

Mojolicious::Plugin::Statsd is a Mojolicious plugin which adds a helper for throwing your metrics at statsd.

INHERITANCE

Mojolicious::Plugin::Statsd is a Mojolicious::Plugin

OPTIONS

Mojolicious::Plugin::Statsd supports the following options.

adapter

  # Mojolicious::Lite
  plugin Statsd => {adapter => 'Memory'};

The tail-end of a classname in the Mojolicious::Plugin::Statsd::Adapter:: namespace, or an object instance to be used as the adapter.

Defaults to Statsd, which itself defaults to emit to UDP localhost:8125.

Bundled adapters are listed in "SEE ALSO". Adapters MUST implement counter and timing.

prefix

  # Mojolicious::Lite
  plugin Statsd => {prefix => 'whatever.'};

A prefix applied to all recorded metrics. This a simple string concatenation, so if you want to namespace, add the trailing . character yourself. It defaults to your $app->moniker, followed by ..

helper

  # Mojolicious::Lite
  plugin Statsd => {helper => 'statistics'};

The helper name to be installed. Defaults to 'stats'

ADDITIONAL OPTIONS

Any further options are passed to the "adapter" during construction, unless you've passed an object already. Refer to the adapter documentation for supported options.

ATTRIBUTES

Mojolicious::Plugin::Statsd has the following attributes, which are best configured through the plugin options above.

adapter

The statsd adapter in use.

prefix

The current prefix to apply to metric names.

METHODS

register

  $plugin->register(Mojolicious->new);
  $plugin->register(Mojolicious->new, {prefix => 'foo'});

Register plugin in Mojolicious application. The optional second argument is a hashref of "OPTIONS".

with_prefix

  my $new = $stats->with_prefix('baz.');

Returns a new instance with the given prefix appended to our own prefix, for scoped recording.

counter

  $stats->counter('foo', 1);
  $stats->counter('bar', 1, 0.5);

Record a change to a counter.

increment

  $stats->increment($name, $sample_rate);

Shortcut for "counter".

decrement

  $stats->decrement($name, $sample_rate);

Shortcut for "counter".

timing

  $stats->timing('foo', 2500, 0.5);
  $stats->timing(foo => 0.5, sub { });
  $stats->timing(foo => sub { });

Record timing.

gauge

  $stats->gauge(xyzzy => 76);
  $stats->gauge(xyzzy => '+25');
  $stats->gauge(xyzzy => -25);

Send a gauge update. Some receiving servers accept sending a signed value rather than an absolute value, and this is supported. Note that on those servers, in order to reach a negative value, you must update to 0 first.

set_add

  $stats->set_add(things => 42);
  $stats->set_add(primes => 1, 3, 5, 7);

Add one or more values to a set.

NAMES

In any place a metric name is specified, it can be substituted with an arrayref in order to update several metrics in a single packet, provided your server supports it.

EXAMPLE

  use Mojolicious::Lite;
  plugin 'Statsd';

  hook after_dispatch => sub {
    my ($c) = @_;
    $c->stats->increment('path.' . $c->req->url->path);
  };

  #...

  app->start;
