A minimalistic statsd client used by sprockets.mixins.statsd

Project description

The sprockets.clients.statsd package implements a simple statsd client that is used by the sprockets.mixins.statsd package. It can be used in your applications for sending metric values to statsd.

The default statsd server that is used is localhost:8125. The STATSD environment variable can be used to set the statsd server connection parameters. This should take the form of a URL, such as udp://statsd.service:8675. Note that the socket for communicating with statsd is created once upon module import and will not change until the application is restarted or the module is reloaded.
