Push octopus deploy performace data to statsd
We use datadog internally to help monitor our systems and provide insight into how our applications are not only performing but also to figure out usage patterns. If octopus deploy were able to report general information such as database pool usage and performance metrics about its internals that could then easily be pumped right into datadog or other stats providers. This could then be used to help troubleshoot clients issues a lot easier, as well as setting up alerts for people trying to manage instances. This could also be expanded to show analytics information about deployments later. Currently we made a first pass plugin for octopus deploy on datadog which provides some insight into the current amount of tasks but its not perfect.

For our use case, we would like Octopus to be able to push deployment failures (and successes) straight to DataDog with the tags so that we can alert on, and dashboard failures to specific infrastructure sets
