zag-agent

The metrics agent sends raw points to the zag-daemons where they will be aggregated.

API

var agent = require('zag-agent')([/* list of all metrics daemon "address:ports" */])

MetricsAgent#counter(String mkey[, Number value])

Increment a counter.

agent.counter("signup")

Increment a counter by a specific value.

agent.counter("search_results", results.length)

MetricsAgent#histogram(String mkey, Number value)

Track a distribution of values. All histograms automatically get a heat map.

agent.histogram("HTTP_server_latency|/index.html", 123)

MetricsAgent#scope(String scope)

Often times all of the metrics in a particular module should be scoped under the same key. #scope(key) returns a MetricsAgent that automatically prepends that key:

var latency = agent.scope("http_latency")
// This is the same as `agent.counter("http_latency>/index.html")`: 
latency.counter("/index.html")

.close()ing a scoped agent will close the parent agent (they share a socket).

MetricsAgent#on("error", function(err) { })

The socket emitted an error.

MetricsAgent#close()

Close the socket.

agent.close()
