Configure StatsD integration

To integrate StatsD with SolarWinds Observability:

  1. In SolarWinds Observability, click Add Data at the top.

  2. In the Add Data dialog, click Integration, and then click StatsD.

  3. In the Add StatsD dialog, select a host with the SolarWinds Observability Agent you want to use for StatsD and click Next.

    To only display Agents running in a Kubernetes cluster, click the List only Agents... toggle.

    If you want to install a dedicated Agent on a dedicated host, add the host and then add the StatsD integration. See Add a self-managed host.

    If you prefer using Docker, see Run the SolarWinds Observability Agent as a Docker image or Kubernetes deployment.

  4. Review the configuration and click Deploy to deploy the changes to the agent.

    • Provide a Display Name.

    • Review the Collection Interval.

  5. Review the configuration file, make any adjustments, and click Apply & Reload to complete the integration setup.

  6. When the installation is complete, review the summary about the deployed StatsD plugin. You can find the metrics you are monitoring in the Metrics Explorer, or create a custom dashboard and add widgets to display collected metrics value.

    The StatsD integration is fully customized and collected metrics depend on what you configured on the exporter side.
