= ReadMe Scout by Highgroove Studios == Description The easier way to monitor servers and web applications. Scout makes monitoring and reporting on your web applications as flexible and simple as possible. Scout is a product of Highgroove Studios. Please visit http://scoutapp.com for more information. == Installing After installing the scout gem: $ sudo gem install scout Simply run: $ scout to run the installation wizard. You'll need your Client Key to continue. == Running the Scout Client The Scout client has several modes of operation and commands. The normal, intended usage is through a scheduled interval with no output. Normal checkin with server: $ scout [OPTIONS] CLIENT_KEY ... OR ... $ scout [OPTIONS] run CLIENT_KEY Install: $ scout ... OR ... $ scout [OPTIONS] install Local plugin testing: $ scout [OPTIONS] test PATH_TO_PLUGIN [PLUGIN_OPTIONS] Clone a client setup: $ scout [OPTIONS] clone CLIENT_KEY NEW_CLIENT_NAME CLIENT_KEY is the indentification key assigned to this client by the server. PATH_TO_PLUGIN is the file system path to a Ruby file that contains a Scout plugin. PLUGIN_OPTIONS can be the code for a Ruby Hash or the path to a YAML options file containing defaults. These options will be used for the plugin run. NEW_CLIENT_NAME is name you wish to use for the new client the server creates. == Cloning a Client The Scout gem can clone an existing client to automate the process of setting up additional clients. An example usage, running: server1 $ scout clone CLIENT_KEY 'My New Client' Will create a new client called 'My New Client' on the Scout server with the same plugins as an already existing client (with the CLIENT_KEY specified). It will also return the new system crontab line: */30 * * * * deploy /usr/bin/scout NEW_CLIENT_KEY For additional help, please visit http://scoutapp.com
