StatsD Instrumental backend

This is a pluggable backend for StatsD, which publishes stats to Instrumental.

$ npm install statsd-instrumental-backend

You have to add the following basic configuration information to your StatsD config file.

  instrumental: {
    key: "[application api key]"

Add statsd-instrumental-backend backend to the list of StatsD backends in the StatsD configuration file:
