A library for extracting data out of Scout, a hosted monitoring service. This is experimental and likely to change.

require 'scout_scout'
scout ='youraccountname', '', 'sekret')

#all your servers
servers = scout.servers

#one specific server - pass in hostname
ram_hungry = ScoutScout::Server.first('')

#all servers that match the hostname.
# see mysql regex formatting:
app_servers = ScoutScout::Server.all(:host => 'db[0-9]*')

#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 => '')

#cluster metrics


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.
