Building the binary
You will first need to build the
passenger-datadog-monitor executable using Go. You can download the source and dependencies, and build the binary by running:
go get -v github.com/Sjeanpierre/passenger-datadog-monitor
Once it completes, you should find your new
passenger-datadog-monitor executable in your
Note that if you are building in a different environment from where you plan to deploy, you should configure your target operating system and architecture.
Installing the binary
After you've built the executable, you should install it on your server (e.g. in
passenger-datadog-monitor runs as a daemon with a 10 second sampling interval. Monit, God, SupervisorD, or any other daemon management tool should be used to manage the process.
Sample Monit config
check process passenger-datadog-monitor with pidfile /var/run/passenger-datadog-monitor.pid start program = "/etc/init.d/passenger-datadog-monitor start" stop program = "/etc/init.d/passenger-datadog-monitor stop"
You should run
passenger-datadog-monitor as root, since access to passenger-status requires root.
passenger-datadog-monitor print will output stats and is useful for debugging.
udp.rb can be run locally when you want to see what is being received on the server side.
