Statsd installation on Ubuntu 14.04 issue. Unable to start service
I’m a relative newbie to running ubuntu, but I have followed along with Justin Ellingwood’s fantastic tutorials for getting graphite and statsd setup to run on Ubuntu 14.04. (https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-configure-statsd-to-collect-arbitrary-stats-for-graphite-on-ubuntu-14-04)
I have completed the installation of statsd as per the tute, but I cannot get the service to start! Whenever I run
sudo service statsd start it will say it’s successful and give it a process number, but then I run a
sudo service statsd status command it shows the status statsd stop/waiting. Anyone know what I might be able to do to track this issue down?
