This is a work in progress. We aim for it to become a good role model for alerts and dashboards eventually, but it is not quite there yet.
The Node Mixin is a set of configurable, reusable, and extensible alerts and dashboards based on the metrics exported by the Node Exporter. The mixin creates recording and alerting rules for Prometheus and suitable dashboard descriptions for Grafana.
To use them, you need to have
jsonnet (v0.13+) and
jb installed. If you
have a working Go development environment, it's easiest to run the following:
$ go get github.com/google/go-jsonnet/cmd/jsonnet $ go get github.com/jsonnet-bundler/jsonnet-bundler/cmd/jb
Note: The make targets
fmt need the
jsonnetfmt binary, which is
currently not included in the Go implementation of
jsonnet. For the time
being, you have to install the C++ version of
jsonnetfmt if you want to use
Next, install the dependencies by running the following command in this directory:
$ jb install
You can then build the Prometheus rules files
$ make node_alerts.yaml node_rules.yaml
You can also build a directory
dashboard_out with the JSON dashboard files
$ make dashboards_out
Note that some of the generated dashboards require recording rules specified in
the previously generated
