I recently deployed statsd and graphite after reading through etsy’s blog post measure anything, measure everything. Finally, I found django-statsd (pypi package is actually django-statsd-mozilla) for some quick and easy integration with Django. However, I was unable to find a way to easily monitor common unix OS information like
vmstat for instance.
So I set out to write something simple to do it and created statsd-ostools as a result. At the moment, it really only supports linux’s
vmstat, but I plan to add support for other platforms in the future.
So take a look at statsd-ostools and let me know what you think. And/or install it via
easy_install http://pypi.python.org/pypi/statsd-ostools pip install http://pypi.python.org/pypi/statsd-ostools
statsd-ostools is written in python and only depends on
statsd so use it on any of your linux servers to monitor them.
