statsd.increment 'activate'

Testing

Run the specs with rake spec

Run the specs and include live integration specs with LIVE=true rake spec. Note: This will test over a real UDP socket.

Performance

  • A short note about DNS: If you use a dns name for the host option, then you will want to use a local caching dns service for optimial performance (e.g. nscd).

Extensions / Libraries / Extra Docs

Contributing to statsd

  • Check out the latest master to make sure the feature hasn't been implemented or the bug hasn't been fixed yet

  • Check out the issue tracker to make sure someone already hasn't requested it and/or contributed it

  • Fork the project

  • Start a feature/bugfix branch

  • Commit and push until you are happy with your contribution

  • Make sure to add tests for it. This is important so I don't break it in a future version unintentionally.

  • Please try not to mess with the Rakefile, version, or history. If you want to have your own version, or is otherwise necessary, that is fine, but please isolate to its own commit so I can cherry-pick around it.
