TCPStatsClient class has a very similar interface to
StatsClient, but internally it uses TCP connections instead of UDP.
These are the main differencies when using
- The constructor supports a
timeoutparameter to set a timeout on all socket actions.
connect()and all methods that send data can potentially raise socket exceptions.
- It is not thread-safe, so it is recommended to not share it across threads unless a lot of attention is paid to make sure that no two threads ever use it at once.
