get StatsD messages into PRTG



I want to Monitor applications with StatsD messages. This standard was introduced by Etsy, and this type of message is widely used by routers, applications, etc. A short and clear description of it can be found here: https://gist.github.com/szaydel/026ab674c7413a227127

We want to somehow flow this data in SatsD format to the PRTG and derive graphs from it and trigger alerts based on its values.

Thank you for your KB-post.

Kindly note that at the moment Statsd is not supported by PRTG.

The application under https://github.com/jonpurdy/statsd2prtg is developed by a third party, not by us, so I am afraid we cannot offer technical support regarding it.

However, maybe some PRTG users already tried that application - if so, feel free to share your experience :)
