What is StatsD?
Who uses StatsD?
Here are some stack decisions, common use cases and reviews by companies and developers who chose StatsD in their tech stack.
I see StatsD is commonly used in conjunction with Datadog. In fact, Datadog even has their own StatsD daemon (called DogStatsD) embedded in the DataDog agent. Can someone explain to me what it is that StatsD gives you which you don't already have with Datadog's APM and distributed tracing functionality?
- Network daemon
- Runs on the Node.js platform
- Sends aggregates to one or more pluggable backend services
