Alerts & Recording Rules

As example alerts and recording rules I have copied my .rules file to this repository.
Please check example.rules.yaml.


You obviously should get the code

go get -u

This should already put a binary called digitalocean_exporter into $GOPATH/bin.

Make sure you copy the .env.example to .env and change this one to your preferences.

Now during development I always run:

make install && digitalocean_exporter

Use make install which uses go install in the background to build faster during development.
