Requirements

Instructions

Get the code

Clone the repo (or clone your own fork)

git clone git@github.com:mcclatchy/outage-tracker.git

Set up the environment

Make a virtual environment

mkvirtualenv outages

Install the requirements

pip3 install -r requirements.txt

Test the script

Run the following

python3 outages.py

After you've confirmed it worked by checking the CLI output and making sure the files are appearing on S3 at the given URLs, you can create a log file. For example:

touch /home/ubuntu/outage-tracker/outages.py

Then you're ready to set it up on a cron and direct the output to that log file. For example, run every 5 minutes (and depending on your environment, directory locations, etc):

*/5 * * * * /usr/bin/python3 /home/ubuntu/outage-tracker/outages.py >> /home/ubuntu/outage-tracker/outages.log
