The StatsD protocol is a great way of shipping raw metrics to Humio from a lot of tools. Both UDP and TCP transport are supported.
Currently StatsD protocol is only supported in on-site installations.
The StatsD format is very simple. In it’s simplest form it looks something like this
Start by creating a new parser with the following regex
\w+?):(? [-+]?[\d\.]+?)\|(? \w+?)(\|@(? [\d\.]+?))?
And no Parse timestamp and Parse key values. Finally give it a name, like “statsd”.
Next, create an ingest listener with the statsd parser.
We strongly recommend using an UDP ingest listener for non-aggregated StatsD data.
