A library for extracting data out of Scout, a hosted monitoring service. This is experimental and likely to change.
require 'scout_scout' scout = ScoutScout.new('youraccountname', 'firstname.lastname@example.org', 'sekret') #all your servers servers = scout.servers #one specific server - pass in hostname ram_hungry = ScoutScout::Server.first('db1.awesome.com') #all servers that match the hostname. # see mysql regex formatting: http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.0/en/regexp.html app_servers = ScoutScout::Server.all(:host => 'db[0-9]*.awesome.com') #details on that server's plugins ram_hungry_plugins = ram_hungry.plugins #details about a specific plugin data = ram_hungry.plugin(12345) #detauls on that server's triggers ram_hungry_triggers = ram_hungry.triggers #details about triggers for a specific plugin plugin_triggers = ram_hungry.plugin(12345).triggers #all available descriptors descriptors = ScoutScout::Descriptor.all # all descriptors on servers that match the provided host descriptors = ScoutScout::Descriptor.all(:host => 'awesome.com') #cluster metrics ScoutScout::Cluster.average('mem_used')
The library allows you to extract aggregate metrics across all and/or selected servers in your account. See Cluster#average for information and examples.
Note on Patches/Pull Requests
Fork the project.
Make your feature addition or bug fix.
Add tests for it. This is important so I don't break it in a future version unintentionally.
Commit, do not mess with rakefile, version, or history. (if you want to have your own version, that is fine but bump version in a commit by itself I can ignore when I pull)
Send me a pull request. Bonus points for topic branches.
