Project description


pip install scrapy-statsd-middleware

  'statsd_middleware.StatsdMiddleware': 543,

  'statsd_middleware.StatsdMiddleware': 543,

There’s also a few settings that you can use:

  • STATSD_HOSTNAME - Defaults to the current machine’s hostname
  • STATSD_PREFIX - Defaults to “hostname.spider-name.”
  • STATSD_HOST_IP - Defaults to “”

This will increment statsd with the following: * requests (spider_reqs_issued) * response (spider_resps_received) * errors (error_KeyError, where KeyError is whatever the error name is) * items processed (processed_Product, where Product is whatever the item class name is)

Example Implementation

Example Installation & Usage

  • Build the docker images docker-compose build
  • Start the statsd container docker-compose up -d
  • Run the example spider: docker-compose -f ./example/docker-compose.yml run spider bash -c “cd ./opt/scrapy/dirbot/ && scrapy crawl dmoz”
