Vigil Reporter for Node. Used in pair with Vigil, the Microservices Status Page.

Vigil Reporter is used to actively submit health information to Vigil from your apps. Apps are best monitored via application probes, which are able to report detailed system information such as CPU and RAM load. This lets Vigil show if an application host system is under high load.

🇭🇺 Crafted in Budapest, Hungary.

How to use?

1. Create reporter

vigil-reporter can be instantiated as such:

var VigilReporter = require("vigil-reporter").VigilReporter;

var vigilReporter = new VigilReporter({
  url        : "https://status.example.com",  // `page_url` from Vigil `config.cfg`
  token      : "YOUR_TOKEN_SECRET",           // `reporter_token` from Vigil `config.cfg`
  probe_id   : "relay",                       // Probe ID containing the parent Node for Replica
  node_id    : "socket-client",               // Node ID containing Replica
  replica_id : "192.168.1.10",                // Unique Replica ID for instance (ie. your IP on the LAN)
  interval   : 30,                            // Reporting interval (in seconds; defaults to 30 seconds if not set)
  console    : require("console"),            // Console instance if you need to debug issues

  tuning     : {                              // Optional tuning options
    use_active_memory : false                 // Set to `true` if you want to calculate RAM usage based on "active" instead of default "used"
  }
});

2. Teardown reporter

If you need to teardown an active reporter, you can use the end() method to unbind it.

vigilReporter.end();
