Some operations teams are taking advantage of Etsy's recently open sourced node.js utility, StatsD. Apparently it can "measure all the things". So Nathan Milford tried to set up graphs for the business and development teams but the task was time consuming. Constructing RPMs for StatsD
on CentOS made his life a little easier and he shares the knowledge on his blog:
"This is the best part and why I can’t wait to implement it, insert your first stat:
echo "testCounter:25|c" | nc -w 1 -u localhost 8125
One line and Boom. Glorious Victory! New Stat!
Open up Graphite @ http://graphite/, login and view it. "
So there you have it! Maybe you'll find a use for parts of this tutorial if you try to use some of these tools on your own. Milford says his next mission is to set up Tattle.Source: http://blog.milford.io/2011/10/building-rpms-for-and-setting-up-statsd-and-graphite-on-centos/
