Push Processors

Mozilla Push message log processors. These processors can be run under AWS Lambda or deployed to a machine. This project also contains common helper functions for parsing heka protobuf messages and running in AWS Lambda.

Currently this consists of a single processor for the Push Messages API.

Push Message Processor

Processes push log messages to extract message metadata for registered crypto public-keys.

Requires Redis.


Checkout this repo, you will need Redis installed to test against.


$ virtualenv ppenv
$ source ppenv/bin/activate
$ pip install -r requirements.txt
$ python develop

Creating an AWS Lambda Zipfile

After modifying push_processor/settings.js for your appropriate settings, a Lambda-ready zipfile can be created with make:

$ make lambda-package

All files in the work directory are included except files listed in the ignore section of lambda.json. Remove any other files that should not be included in the zipfile from the work directory.

The AWS handler you should set is: lambda.handler, which will then call the Push Processor.

Lambda VPC Access

The Push Processor needs access to both Redis and AWS S3. It will likely be necessary to run the Lambda function in a VPC that has access to the Elasticache Redis instance. Lambda requires the subnet(s) it runs in to have NAT Gateway access to the Internet. A rough overview of what this looks like:

NAT Gateway

  1. Define one or more 'private' subnets, these are where your Lambda function will run.
  2. Define one or more 'public' subnets, these are where the NAT Gateway(s) will be.
  3. Create the NAT Gateway(s) in the 'public' subnets.
  4. Create a route table for the 'public' subnet(s), and route '' to the VPC Internet Gateway. The public subnets should then be explicitly associated with the new route table.
  5. Create a route table for the 'private' subnet(s), and route '' to a NAT Gateway that you defined.

The Push Processor Lambda function should then be able to access both S3 and the Elasticache machines in the same 'private' subnet(s).
