INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS Note: the 'ylastic-costagent' program must be installed from CPAN. The app-ylastic-costagent git repository is not designed for direct installation. It contains an incomplete version of ylastic-costagent that is compiled and released using the awesome Dist::Zilla tool (http://dzil.org). (Think about it like this: dzil 'compiles' the repository into a tarball for release to CPAN. If you are an end-user, you want the code from CPAN, not the repo.) STEP 1 - Install App::Ylastic::CostAgent from CPAN Install App::Ylastic::CostAgent using your regular CPAN client or distribution package manager (if available). You may need the OpenSSL development libraries installed if you don't already have SSL working. If you aren't sure how to configure a CPAN client, see this excellent post on using CPAN as a non-root user: http://goo.gl/j27IB For example, assuming Ubuntu Linux and a bash shell: $ sudo apt-get install libssl-dev $ curl -L http://cpanmin.us | perl - -l ~/perl5 App::cpanminus local::lib $ eval `perl -I ~/perl5/lib/perl5 -Mlocal::lib` $ echo 'eval `perl -I ~/perl5/lib/perl5 -Mlocal::lib`' >> ~/.bashrc $ cpanm App::Ylastic::CostAgent STEP 2 - Write a configuration file The ylastic-costagent program requires a configuration file that specifies your Ylastic and AWS account data. The file is 'INI' format. Here is a template: ylastic_id = 1234567890abdcef1234567890abcdef12345678 [1234-5689-0123] user = email@example.com pass = trustno1 [4321-9865-3210] user = firstname.lastname@example.org pass = trustno1 Each Amazon account should be listed as a separate section with the account ID number in brackets. (You may omit dashes if you wish.) STEP 3 - Schedule ylastic-costagent as a cron job The ylastic-costagent program should be run regularly to keep your usage data current on Ylastic. Here is an example cron job entry that updates usage data every 12 hours: 0 */12 * * * /path/to/ylastic-costagent -s user /path/to/config.ini The -s user option will log to the user facility of syslogd. If you use a local perl library, be sure to add an appropriate PERL5LIB to your crontab file, e.g.: PERL5LIB=$HOME/perl5/lib/perl5/i686-linux:$HOME/perl5/lib/perl5 Look at the PERL5LIB set by local::lib for the right paths to use.
