Scout Plugins Library

Scout is a hosted monitoring solution. Scout uses open-source plugins (written in Ruby) to monitor a wide variety of system, OS, and application metrics.

Each folder in this repository represents one Scout plugin.

Gem Dependencies

This repo contains a Gemfile to use with bundler to install needed Gems for tests and the plugins themselves.

If you don't have Bundler:

gem install bundler

Once Bundler is installed:

bundle install

How to Make your own Scout plugin

Anyone can create a Scout plugin. Get started by:

  1. looking at the examples in this Repository
  2. reading the development guide at

When you have something working you'd like to share, drop us a note at

Or, send us a pull request here on github. Also don't hesitate to contact us before or during plugin development if you need guidance.

A note on tests

Plugin tests are key. Read up on plugin testing at

We prefer test/unit for its ubiquity and simplicity.
