NewRelic alerts via SMS
1. update settings.py.sample, save as settings.py
2. python scripts.py configure_db
3. python webhook.py
With NewRelic webhooks, one can write a custom web app to play with alerts.
Here is an attempt to send an SMS whenever we receive an alert.
NewRelic doesnt give us an interface to add users to a plugin's alerts, this
project gives a web and REST api based interface to manage users data and
Read this https://docs.newrelic.com/docs/alerts/webhook-examples. Create a channel
for webhook and go to an alert policy(should be found in tools>alert policy)
add this webhook as an alert channel. Now whenever an alert is raised from this alert policy,
a SMS will be sent to the corresponding users in user channels.
A SMS is also sent to the default person.
Change settings.py.sample and run python db_configure.py, this will configure
the database with your plugins, users. You are all set, run python webhook.py.
If python complains about missing librarys, install them and re-run the command.
It starts a service at port 8080(configurable). Use something like runscope.com,
if you want to test it with newrelic, before deploying.
With runscope.com, you can quickly expose a localservice to public.
Any change in settings.py file can be quickly consumed by the app without restarting by sending it
a USR1 signal. Ex: ps aux | grep webhook #note down the pid and then run this command,
kill -s USR1 pid the service will pick the new set of plugins.
Visit localhost:8080/usage, to manage users and to subscribe to a plugin.
