You can monitor your Python applications using a Python web module, the Linux Agent, and the Metricly StatsD server.



  1. Navigate to the netuitive-agent.conf file.
  2. Update the StatsD setting to enabled = True.
# local statsd server
enabled = True

3. Download the python web module and extract the files.

>> wget
>> tar xzvf

4. Move the web directory to the same folder as your application.

>> mv /opt/python

5. Download the pystatsd client from GitHub.

>> git clone

6. Move the statsd directory to the same folder as your application.

>> cd pystatsd
>> mv statsd /opt/python/

7. Import the web and statsd modules into your application’s code.

import web
import statsd

8. Instrument your application code by calling the appropriate functions. Here’s an example:

import web
import statsd

# Counter Increment
c.incr('', 1)

# Counter Decrement
c.decr('', 1)

# Timer
c.timing('', 320)

# Gauge
c.gauge('', 4)

urls = (
  '/', 'index'

class index:
  def GET(self):
    return "Hello, world!"

if __name__ == "__main__":
  app = web.application(urls, globals())

9. Save and then restart your application and the Linux Agent.
