Monitoring StatsD with New Relic Infrastructure

StatsD is a lightweight Node.js application built and open sourced by the engineering team at Etsy. It works by listening for metrics from different applications, aggregating them, and sending them onward to a configured backend. You can add more backends to send the aggregated and summarized metrics to third-party systems, including New Relic Infrastructure. But if you’re capturing hundreds of metrics via StatsD, how do you properly visualize and alert on them? We can help.

What you can use to monitor StatsD with our integration

Gauges

The absolute value of an increasing number—e.g., the number of shopping cart checkouts.

 

 

Counters

The number of times something happened—e.g., the amount of 3rd-party API calls. StatsD also automatically tracks the rate.

Sets

The number of occurrences of an event—e.g., the number of unique visitors on your website.

Timers

Typically used to track response times. StatsD will keep all timing sample points and send aggregate metrics when the data is flushed.

We give you a central place to track, trend, and manage your StatsD metrics. Once you have everything installed and configured, you can visualize your data, create queries and custom charts, and set up alert conditions to help you stay on top of your performance.
