Dev env for StackTach development. Uses Notigen event generator and yagi.
Note: read the Operators Guide etherpad for deployment notes.
make sure you have a working python dev environment (2.7+ ideally) including virtualenv. Install rabbitmq and mysql-server.
handle the prerequisites above. git clone https://github.com/openstack/stacktach-sandbox cd sandbox create a mysql database to use set the database url appropriately in winchester.yaml ./build.sh
Using Vagrant for fast local provisioning:
* Install [Vagrant](https://www.vagrantup.com/downloads.html) * Install [VirtualBox](https://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/Downloads) * git clone https://github.com/StackTach/sandbox.git * cd sandbox/vagrant * vagrant up * vagrant ssh * cd stacktach-sandbox * ./build.sh
You can create a
local.sh to override the defaults:
SOURCE_DIR=git # where the StackTach repos are cloned VENV_DIR=.venv # name of the .venv
build.sh script will create clone each of the StackTach projects
$SOURCE_DIR directory (so you can work on them in a running env).
The virtualenv will be created and each of the projects (and their dependencies) installed into it.
screen session is started, based on
screenrc.winchester which will start the
notigen event generator. The event generator simulated OpenStack
notifications and pumps them into rabbitmq.
yagi-event is also started
yagi.conf configuration file. This will read events from
the rabbit queue and save them to local files. The working directory
and archive directory for
shoebox is specified in
The sandbox environment configures
shoebox to archive notifications
to local .json files and tarball them up after the directory reaches
To have shoebox upload to Swift, you are required to create a credentials file
.../sandbox/ directory (like in
.../git/sandbox/etc/sample_rax_credentials.conf) Call it
swift_credentials.conf or alter the
shoebox.conf file accordingly. If
you don't have access to a Swift server, like CloudFiles, read
the config file for details on disabling this feature.
