django-monit - A Simple Monit Collector
django-monit is currently very preliminary and is best for people who are comfortable installing reusable apps in Django projects.
django-monit is a reusable Django application providing a central Monit "collector" and storage of the Monit nodes' information and events. Currently, django-monit can be installed as an app within an existing Django site. In the future, a tool could build a simple Django project if someone wished to only deploy django-monit.
At this point, django-monit only acts as a collector of information from any number of Monit nodes, and can not push restart commands to the nodes as M/Monit can do.
My goal currently is to create a tool for making Monit data easily accessible from a Django project, rather than acting as a replacement for M/Monit.
django-monit has been tested on the Django 1.2 trunk using Monit 5.0.3 provided as a Ubuntu 9.10 package.
The easiest way to install django-monit is via pip:
pip install django-monit
Add 'monit' to the INSTALLED_APPS in your settings.py
Add url(r'^monit/', include('monit.urls')) in your urls.py:
urlpatterns = patterns('', url(r'^app/', include('yourapp.urls')), url(r'^monit/', include('monit.urls')), (r'^admin/', include(admin.site.urls)), )
In the monitrc, you should configure your django-monit instance as a collector:
set mmonit http://monit:email@example.com:8000/monit/collector
- Django (tested on pre-1.2 trunk)
If you have checked out the source, you can run the test suite, which uses a simple Django project in the test_project folder:
cd test_project # create a virtualenv and install the dependencies create_env.sh # run the tests ./manage.py test monit
