StatsD ingestion

The Collector supports Graphite metrics and two different ways to set up Graphite-related ingestion: StatsD or Carbon. To enable or make changes to Graphite ingestion, contact your account manager to arrange for the appropriate backend changes.

StatsD sends unaggregated data to the Collector and Chronosphere aggregation rules to ensure they get aggregated appropriately.

You can enable client-side aggregations for StatsD. These aggregations reduce network egress and processed writes to the Chronosphere app.

To ingest StatsD metrics with the Collector, add the following to the configuration file under the push YAML collection:

push:
  statsd:
    enabled: true
    listenAddress: 0.0.0.0:3031

The StatsD server runs as a UDP server at the provided listen address.
