swprobe: swift middleware for sending metrics to graphite using statsd


Hi all,

I'm announcing a piece of Swift middleware, swprobe [1], designed to gather run-time metrics and ship them off to Graphite [2] for near real-time monitoring. Currently it sends out bytes up- and downloaded per account, http methods and response codes and timings in miliseconds on each call.

To be able to use this you need Graphite [2]. You also need statsd running, preferably on the local machine since there potentially many small UDP packets are being sent out. Please also note that we have not yet tested this with production workloads.
