Statistics Microservice

This is a system event logging microservice from Pip.Services library. It logs important system events like starts and stops of servers, upgrades to a new version, fatal system errors or key business transactions.

The microservice currently supports the following deployment options:

  • Deployment platforms: Standalone Process, Seneca Plugin
  • External APIs: HTTP/REST, Seneca
  • Persistence: Memory, Flat Files, MongoDB

This microservice has no dependencies on other microservices.

Logical contract of the microservice is presented below. For physical implementation (HTTP/REST, Thrift, Seneca, Lambda, etc.), please, refer to documentation of the specific protocol.

Right now the only way to get the microservice is to check it out directly from github repository

git clone git@github.com:pip-services-infrastructure/pip-services-statistics-node.git

Pip.Service team is working to implement packaging and make stable releases available for your as zip downloadable archieves.


Add config.json file to the root of the microservice folder and set configuration parameters. As the starting point you can use example configuration from config.example.yml file.

Example of microservice configuration

descriptor: "pip-services-container:container-info:default:default:1.0"
  name: "pip-services-statistics"
  description: "Statistics microservice"
descriptor: "pip-services-commons:logger:console:default:1.0"
  level: "trace"
descriptor: "pip-services-statistics:persistence:file:default:1.0"
  path: "./data/statistics.json"
descriptor: "pip-services-statistics:controller:default:default:1.0"
descriptor: "pip-services-statistics:service:http:default:1.0"
    protocol: "http"
    host: ""
    port: 3000

For more information on the microservice configuration see Configuration Guide.

Start the microservice using the command:

node run


The easiest way to work with the microservice is to use client SDK. The complete list of available client SDKs for different languages is listed in the Quick Links

If you use Node.js then you should add dependency to the client SDK into package.json file of your project

    dependencies: {
        "pip-clients-statistics-node": "^1.0.*"

Inside your code get the reference to the client SDK

var sdk = new require('pip-clients-statistics-node');

Define client configuration parameters that match configuration of the microservice external API

// Client configuration
var config = {
    connection: {
        protocol: 'http',
        host: 'localhost', 
        port: 8080

Instantiate the client and open connection to the microservice

// Create the client instance
var client = sdk.StatisticsHttpClientV1(config);
// Connect to the microservice
client.open(null, function(err) {
    if (err) {
        console.error('Connection to the microservice failed');
    // Work with the microservice

Now the client is ready to perform operations

// Increment counter
    function (err) {
// Get the list system events
    function(err, value) {
