Install the following gems: gem install right_aws gem install haml
Install RRDtool: http://oss.oetiker.ch/rrdtool/ Make sure to enter bindings/ruby and install the ruby bindings as well.
Install the gems for whatever database you plan on using, e.g. sqlite3. Note: use of sqlite3 in production is strongly discouraged. gem install sqlite3-ruby
Edit your database configuration to your liking. (edit config/database.yml)
Create heymon's databases rake db:migrate
config/environment.rbto point to your collectd installation. Note: yes, the implication is that heymon must run on the same machine as collectd. COLLECTD_RRD = '<path to collectd rrds e.g. /dist/collectd/var/lib/collectd/rrd>' # (edit config/environment.rb to change the following line) Also edit the location of your rrdtool binary as necessary: RRDTOOL_BIN = '<path to rrdtool binary e.g. /usr/local/bin/rrdtool>'
Start rails and you're off!
