NAME

Plack::Middleware::Statsd - send statistics to statsd

VERSION

version v0.3.3

SYNOPSIS

  use Plack::Builder;
  use Net::Statsd::Tiny;

  builder {

    enable "Statsd",
      client      => Net::Statsd::Tiny->new( ... ),
      sample_rate => 1.0;

    ...

    sub {
      my ($env) = @_;

      # Send statistics via other middleware

      if (my $stats = $env->{'psgix.monitor.statsd'}) {

        $stats->increment('myapp.wibble');

      }


    };

  };

DESCRIPTION

This middleware gathers metrics from the application send sends them to a statsd server.

ATTRIBUTES

client

This is a statsd client, such as an instance of Net::Statsd::Tiny.

If one is omitted, then it will default to one defined in the environment hash at psgix.monitor.statsd.

psgix.monitor.statsd will be set to the current client if it is not set.

The only restriction on the client is that it has the same API as Net::Statsd::Tiny or similar modules, by supporting the following methods:

  • increment

  • timing_ms or timing

  • set_add

This has been tested with Net::Statsd::Lite and Net::Statsd::Client.

Other statsd client modules may be used via a wrapper class.

sample_rate

The default sampling rate to used, which should be a value between 0 and 1. This will override the default rate of the "client", if there is one.

The default is 1.

METRICS

The following metrics are logged:

psgi.request.method.$METHOD

This increments a counter for the request method.

psgi.request.remote_addr

The remote address is added to the set.

psgi.request.content-length

The content-length of the request, if it is specified in the header.

This is treated as a timing rather than a counter, so that statistics can be saved.

psgi.request.content-type.$TYPE.$SUBTYPE

A counter for the content type of request bodies is incremented, e.g. psgi.request.content-type.application.x-www-form-urlencoded.

Any modifiers in the type, e.g. charset, will be ignored.

psgi.response.content-length

The content-length of the response, if it is specified in the header.

This is treated as a timing rather than a counter, so that statistics can be saved.

psgi.response.content-type.$TYPE.$SUBTYPE

A counter for the content type is incremented, e.g. for a JPEG image, the counter psgi.response.content-type.image.jpeg is incremented.

Any modifiers in the type, e.g. charset, will be ignored.

psgi.response.status.$CODE

A counter for the HTTP status code is incremented.

psgi.response.time

The response time, in ms.

As of v0.3.1, this is no longer rounded up to an integer. If this causes problems with your statsd daemon, then you may need to use a subclassed version of your statsd client to work around this.

psgi.response.x-sendfile

This counter is incremented when the X-Sendfile header is added.

The header is configured using the plack.xsendfile.type environment key, ortherwise the HTTP_X_SENDFILE_TYPE environment variable.

See Plack::Middleware::XSendfile for more information.

psgix.harakiri

This counter is incremented when the harakiri flag is set.

If you want to rename these, or modify sampling rates, then you will need to use a wrapper class for the "client".

EXAMPLES

Using from Catalyst

You can access the configured statsd client from Catalyst:

  sub finalize {
    my $c = shift;

    if (my $statsd = $c->req->env->{'psgix.monitor.statsd'}) {
      ...


    }

    $c->next::method(@_);
  }
