The statsd component makes it possible to transfer all state changes to an external StatsD instance.

To use the statsd component in your installation, add the following to your configuration.yaml file:

# Example configuration.yaml entry

Configuration variables:

  • host (Optional): IP address of your StatsD host, eg. Defaults to localhost.
  • port (Optional): Port to use. Defaults to 8125.
  • prefix (Optional): Prefix to use. Defaults to hass.
  • rate (Optional): The sample rate. Defaults to 1.
  • log_attributes (Optional): Log state and attribute changes. This changes the default stats path.
  • value_mapping (Optional): Map non-numerical values to numerical ones.

Full example:

# Example configuration.yaml entry
  prefix: home
  rate: 5
    cooling: 1
    heating: 10

StatsD supports various backends.
