0.8.0-Preview Release Notes

Bosun

Upgrading

Since it has been over a year since the previous release it is possible not all breaking changes are accounted for, so you should test this out first and backup your redis/ledis data. Some known breaking changes:

  • The elastic configuration is different, see System configuration :: ElasticConf for an example of what it should look like
  • In order to support linking related incidents, a migration will run on the redis/ledis data on the first startup which will need to complete before Bosun starts running

0.6.0-beta Release Notes

Bosun

The main goal of Bosun 0.6.0 was to smooth out the alert creation and editing workflow. Previously, users would have to copy the configuration from Bosun's UI, get it to the server, and then restart the process. Now users can edit the config directly from Bosun's UI, and the changes will be loaded without restarting the bosun process. Since the rules can now be edited via Bosun's UI, authorization via LDAP and SSL support has been added as well.

Major Changes:

Upgrading

  • Since the configuration file has been split, you will need to move some of what used be in the config into system configuration.
  • On the first execution, a database schema migration will take place that can take several minutes. During this time bosun will not be available. It is recommended to back up Bosun's database before the upgrade.

Other Changes

  • New Expression Functions:
  • New Template Functions / Variables: notNil, .LastError, and .Errors
  • Comments are now allowed in the Expression Page in Bosun's UI.
  • Bosun's navbar now shows if quiet mode is enabled.
  • Notes can now be added to incidents.
  • Improved Bosun's incident view.
  • Improved Bosun's graph page to be more keyboard friendly: better order of fields with the TAB key and shift-enter within text fields will execute.
  • Updated Influx library to be compatible with current versions.
  • Optimized elastic query performance by not fetching indices and fix bug caused by indices not being part of the cache key #1931.
  • Fixed issue in scheduler where adjacent runs would be given the same to represent "now" #2029.
  • Allow the empty tagset to be a dependency for alerts that have tags #2027.
  • Adjustments to Bosun's UI to make it more vertically compact.
  • Fixed HTTP template funcs to have a shorter timeout so they don't block template rendering for too long when they timeout.
  • Allow empty tagsets in silence silence: allow empty tag sets #1860.

Expected Changes Between Beta and 0.6.0 final:

  • Tooling outside of the Bosun process doesn't have auth support (except for the Grafana Plugin). The following will have auth support before final: scollector, (cli tools: annotate, silence), tsdbrelay, BosunReporter.NET, and Opserver.
  • Support for multiple Elastic backends in a single instance may be added. If this happens the syntax for the system configuration (toml file) of elastic might change.

tsdbrelay:

  • fix http: proxy error: EOF due to mixing Content-Encoding headers #1889
  • enable version numbers, fix metadata, add error metrics #1859
  • enable expvar to help with troubleshooting
  • Drain body responses in tsdbrelay/scollector/collect so that the connection is eligible for reuse #2036

scollector:

  • Google webmaster: Skip new "sc-set" sites that we can't do API calls on. #2032
  • TOML flag to enable SWbemServices worker for better WMI performance in Windows #2028
  • Bug fixes for Azure EA billing #1984
  • Added Azure Enterprise Agreement billing collector #1903
  • Process monitoring: track process PIDs as a metric #1964
  • When WatchedProc processes die, clean them up #1962
  • Bug fix for DNS collector #1920
  • Update SNMP timeout from 5s to 30s and allow override #1900
  • Set custom UserAgent and use facebookgo/httpcontrol for 60s RequestTimeout #1878
  • add a kill switch for total private memory used by scollector #1866
  • fix empty host= tags not working after PR #1856 #1871
  • fix DisableSelf flag not working for version/post.batchsize #1868
  • bugfix - datapoint validation #1856
  • Check for NaN in Valid() #1864
  • mssql.agent.* for monitoring SQL Agent jobs #1855
  • skip md volumes if mdadm binary is missing #1850
  • new MSSQL buffer/memory metrics #1849
  • update wmi package #1843 and #1837
  • Fix WMI names for HP EVA #1852
  • Fix dsc StartDate parsing #1994
  • elasticsearch: Include cluster tag in cluster health metrics.
  • fix httpunit hu.time_total by casting to int64
  • add IsRemote flag for cadvisor collector to disable block device lookups

other:

  • Add ackTime to incident filters #2014
  • Default to limited duration on tagv search. #1977
  • Have opentsdb.Duration implement encoding.TextUnmarshaler. #1975
  • Add google_webmaster collector. #1959
  • fix typo for container.fs.available #1948
  • Making redis monitoring a little prettier. #1944

misc:

  • util package: don't try to clean IP addresses. Also don't clean twice on Set #1902
  • vendor: annotate (new middleware methods) #1943
  • vendor: update vendor/github.com/godbus/dbus #1858

0.5.0 Release Notes

Bosun

This is our first non-preview release in 9 months and includes significant changes since 0.4.0. Future releases should be at a quicker pace since this release involved a complete refactor of Bosun's internal storage.

  • We have moved Bosun's internal storage from purely in-memory (that was seralized to bolt) to redis/ledis and refactored the code to be more incident based. In 0.4.0 the dashboard could take 10-30 seconds to load at times. It now should not take more than a second under normal conditions, and should be even faster in a future release. This also results in faster startup times for Bosun and other performance improvements
  • Deprecated the logstash queries and replaced them with more generic elastic functions. This supports different time formats, index naming schemes, and adds more search possibilities
  • Added support for basic series operations. Before with seriesSets you could only use operators on them by combining them with scalars or numberSets. Now you can do operations like q(..) * q(...)
  • Added various functions to the expression language:
    • merge, shift, and over: Combines series sets, shift the time, show time over time graphs querying OpenTSDB
    • series: Manually construct a series -- useful for testing and drawing lines on graphs
    • month: Get the start of the calendar month, useful for alerts that follow the calendar such as bandwidth billing
    • tod: Turns a number into a duration string, so you can do your query durations based on duration math
    • linelr: Draws a line to visualize the result of forecastlr
  • Support for OpenTSDB 2.2 filters which allow you to aggregate a subset of tagvalues for a tagkey.
  • Added annotations to Bosun which are stored in Elastic (designed to possibly support other backends in the future). Bosun annotations have a start and end time, so you can use them to capture outages and maintenance windows
  • Added Grafana integration via the new Bosun Grafana Plugin
  • Added a route for OpServer integration (Preview)
  • Added bar graphs to the expression page when the result is a numberSet
  • Added forceClose and Purge actions
  • Improved incident filters (now supports AND, OR, !, and () grouping)

Upgrading

Before upgrading to this version, you should decide if you want to use a dedicated redis instance (recommended for production use), or the embedded ledisdb instance (default behavior). Instructions for configuring redis/ledis can be found on our website. The first time bosun starts up with this version, it will migrate all data from the old boltdb file into the new redis store. After that the bolt file should not be needed any more. You should back up your bolt state file before doing this operation, and note that it may take several minutes for Bosun to start while it does the migration.

Breaking Changes you need to be aware of

  • When using OpenTSDB 2.2, wildcard expansion in queries is now done by OpenTSDB instead of Bosun. This is cleaner and results in better performance, but mixing wildcards and alternation is no longer supported until OpenTSDB supports it. For example *foo*|*baz*. Bosun will not warn you about this so if you are using this alerts may silently fail. Be sure to look for these in your config before upgrading.
  • The graphite backend now rejects tags that are not valid Bosun tags (which have the same restrictions as OpenTSDB tags) since some of them would cause panics. The restrictions are "Only the following characters are allowed: a to z, A to Z, 0 to 9, -, _, ., / or Unicode letters". Some graphite based alerts may require updating

In Progress for Future Release

  • Config reloading without requiring the bosun process to be restarted
  • (Experiment) Last data available through the expression language so some alerts could still work if opentsdb is down
  • (Experiment) Working with distributions in addition to series (i.e. histograms)
  • Better post notifications

scollector

  • New collectors:
    • systemd service collector
    • varnish
    • Oracle
    • status.io pages
    • Fastly api stats
    • Extrahop
    • Elastic v2
    • Google Analytics collector
    • Nexpose collector
    • Cisco IOS BGP information (via snmp)
    • Fortinet SNMP collector
    • cadvisor
    • Support for MSSQL Named Instances
  • Add a local listener so datapoints can be pased to scollector via http
  • Bad datapoints in a batch no longer invalidate the entire batch
  • Better filtering options for excluding collectors and/or specific metrics

TSDBRelay

  • Added "external counters" for infrequent or sporadic metrics. These are counters that can receive increments from multiple sources.

This is a major release with lots of features and bugfixes.

redis migration:

Bosun's internal data storage has been converted from purely in-memory to redis. If you still desire a standalone mode, it will fallback to a ledisdb instance hosted in-proc. For configuration details see the docs. Data will be migrated from the state file when you first run this release. Make sure your desired config is established before running. Data will not be deleted from bolt.

This is a major release with lots of features and bugfixes.

redis migration:

Bosun's internal data storage has been converted from purely in-memory to redis. If you still desire a standalone mode, it will fallback to a ledisdb instance hosted in-proc. For configuration details see the docs. Data will be migrated from the state file when you first run this release. Make sure your desired config is established before running. Data will not be deleted from bolt.

scollector:

  • add metadata to redis collector #1622
  • Fix for unset MaxQueueLen #1596
  • Change Linux process monitoring to use regex for Comm… #1565
  • only send osProc stats if proc count > 0 #1527
