Express Middleware for sending data to StatsD and then grapphite.
Please refer to the Lynx documentation for more in depth details for configuring the Lynx StatsD Client.
Once your client is configured, it's pretty straight forward to configure express-lynx.
npm install express-lynx
// Import lynx and express-lynxvar lynx = ;var expressLynx = ; // Setup your Lynx StatsD client as normal, optionally passing a prefix (like 'express'), or [hostname] ()var metrics = 'localhost' 8125 prefix: 'express'; // Create the Express middleware passing in the Lynx StatsD Client you createdvar statsdMiddleware = ; // Tell Express to use your statsD middlewareserver;
By default express-lynx will track the counts for each response code and a response time for the overall system. What's more useful is to have timing for each route in your Express app. express-lynx can be configured to give you per-route timing by adding an option timeByUrl to the middleware constructor.
