The statsd input package spawns a UDP server and listens for metrics in StatsD compatible format. This input can be used to collect metrics from services that send data over the StatsD protocol. To tailor the data you can provide custom mappings and ingest pipelines through Kibana.

Metric types

The input supports the following types of metrics:

Counter (c):: Measurement which accumulates over a period of time until flushed (value set to 0).

Gauge (g):: Measurement which can increase, decrease or be set to a value.

Timer (ms):: Time measurement (in milliseconds) of an event.

Histogram (h):: Time measurement, an alias for the Timer.

Set (s):: Measurement which counts unique occurrences until flushed (value set to 0).

Compatibility

Node.js version v18.12.1 is used to test the Statsd input package
