server-monitors

This is a collection of scripts (and cron jobs) to setup some basic monitoring of servers.

Note: This is setup for the default amazon ami on an ec2 server. You may have to alter this to get it work perfectly on your server.

Install

First, you must have python and twilio-python installed.

sudo su
curl https://raw.github.com/pypa/pip/master/contrib/get-pip.py | python
pip install twilio

Second, pull down the project and setup the cron jobs.

git clone git@github.com:adamdecaf/server-monitors.git
# Copy config.sample.py to config.py and update the values
sudo su
crontab -e
