We run a couple of automated

given a score based on how well
the author has formatted their
code and documentation and
modules are also checked for

andyroyle/storm_statsd — version 1.0.0 Mar 8th 2016


Build Status Puppet Forge


This Puppet module will install storm-statsd on Debian or RedHat.


puppet module install --modulepath /path/to/puppet/modules andyroyle-storm_statsd


This module assumes nodejs & npm is installed on the host, but will not do it for you. I recommend using puppet/nodejs to set this up.


    class { 'storm_statsd':
      servers => [
          host     => '',
          username => 'user',
          password => 'password',
          tags     => {                     # tags are only supported by influxdb backend
            foo => 'bar'
          prefix   => 'bar.storm.yay' # prefix to apply to the metric name
      statsd => {
        host     => 'localhost',
        port     => 8125,
        interval => 10, # interval in seconds to send metrics,
        prefix   => 'foo', # global prefix to apply to all metrics,
        debug    => true # print out metrics that are logged (default false)


bundle install
bundle exec librarian-puppet install
vagrant up

Custom Nodejs Environment

Use the $environment parameter to add custom environment variables or run scripts in the /etc/default/storm-statsd file:

class { 'storm-statsd':
  # ...
  environment  => [

This looks familiar
