Alerta Release 4.8
The Alerta monitoring tool was developed with the following aims in mind:
- distributed and de-coupled so that it is SCALABLE
- minimal CONFIGURATION that easily accepts alerts from any source
- quick at-a-glance VISUALISATION with drill-down to detail
Related projects can be found on the Alerta Org Repo at https://github.com/alerta/.
The only mandatory dependency is MongoDB. Everything else is optional.
- MongoDB version 3.x
A messaging transport that supports AMQP is required if it is wanted to send notifications to alert subscribers. It is recommended to use RabbitMQ, but Redis and even MongoDB have been tested and shown to work.
Note: The default settings use MongoDB so that no additional configuration is required.
To install MongoDB on Debian/Ubuntu run::
$ sudo apt-get install -y mongodb-org $ mongod
To install the Alerta server and client run::
$ pip install alerta-server alerta $ alertad
To install the web console run::
$ wget -O alerta-web.tgz https://github.com/alerta/angular-alerta-webui/tarball/master $ tar zxvf alerta-web.tgz $ cd alerta-angular-alerta-webui-*/app $ python -m SimpleHTTPServer 8000 >> browse to http://localhost:8000
To configure the
alertad server override the default settings in
ALERTA_SVR_CONF_FILE environment variable::
$ ALERTA_SVR_CONF_FILE=~/.alertad.conf $ echo "DEBUG=True" > $ALERTA_SVR_CONF_FILE
More information on configuration and other aspects of alerta can be found at http://docs.alerta.io
To run the tests use::
$ ALERTA_SVR_CONF_FILE= nosetests
Alerta can be deployed to the cloud easily using Heroku https://github.com/alerta/heroku-api-alerta, AWS EC2 https://github.com/alerta/alerta-cloudformation, or RedHat OpenShift https://github.com/alerta/openshift-api-alerta
