  • This is the 3rd statsd client for node.js. I don't like to re-invent the wheel and I must admint it's really a bad thing. However, I need a simple but working statsd client and it seems that (at the time of writing) the other modules suffer small bugs that prevent me to put it in production. Now you know cause there're 3 modules for such a simple client.
  • Testing
  • Add sampling support
  • Log errors: stderr or logger? max logs/minute?
