Metron = Metrics + Monitoring
Create and manage an EC2 instance for collecting metrics across dev and QA environments.
Bootstrap your environment
Configure for EC2
You will need to drop 4 files into config. These files are in
.gitignore so they will not be checked in.
access_key- AWS access key. Contents should be the access key, in text.
secret_key- AWS secret key. Contents should be your secret access key, in text.
identity.pem- Identity file used to log in. Contents will be an X.509 certificate.
key_name- File containing the name of an AWS key to use. Should correspond to the identity file.
I suggest making symlinks to your primary source for each of these. For example,
ln -s ~/.ec2/access_key.txt config/access_key ln -s ~/.ec2/secret_access_key.txt config/secret_key
And so on.
vagrant up --provider=aws Bootstrap and configure a new instance on EC2.
vagrant up Bootstrap and configure a virtual machine on your local box.
The Graphite GUI will be available on port 80 after boot. When using a local VM, the GUI will be at http://18.104.22.168/.
