Fink alert simulator
fink-alert-simulator is a package to inject alert data to Apache Kafka to feed brokers listening to Kafka streams. The main purposes are testing the broker and replaying historical alert data. This package belongs to the fink broker ecosystem.
Fork and/or clone the repo, and update your
PATH to use the tools:
# in your ~/.bash_profile export FINK_ALERT_SIMULATOR=/path/to/fink-alert-simulator export PYTHONPATH=$FINK_ALERT_SIMULATOR:$PYTHONPATH export PATH=$FINK_ALERT_SIMULATOR/bin:$PATH
fink_simulator [options] [-h]
Note that you would need to have access to a Kafka cluster to publish alerts, otherwise you can use the docker version for local tests (you would need docker-compose installed). Learn more on how to use fink-alert-simulator by following the dedicated tutorial.
