BeePing v0.5.0

Build Status

previously named pingmeback

It forages the servers and brings the metrics back to the hive

beeping

BeePing is a distant http check as a Service. Call the very simple API, BeePing will measure website for you.

πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡ΈπŸ’š 200 OK - 119 ms - (http_status_code, http_request_time)

πŸ“– DNS - 9 ms - (dns_lookup)

πŸ”„ TCP - 6 ms - (tcp_connection)

πŸ”’ TLS - 52 ms - (tls_handshake)

πŸ–₯ Server Processing - 43 ms - (server_processing)

πŸ”½ Transfer - 6 ms - (content_transfer)

Other attributes :

  • cert_expiry_days_left
  • http_body_pattern

Features:

  • Very simple JSON API
  • Lot of metrics
  • Timeline of HTTP request
  • SSL Expiration check
  • Server SSL/TLS version and Ciphers
  • Pattern check (search for text in response)
  • GeoIP resolution
  • Single binary

Big hugs to :

  • Dave Cheney for his inspirational work on httpstat
  • Taichi Nakashima for his work on httpstat lib go-httpstat

Install

Download latest version on releases page

  • chmod +x beeping
  • sudo mv beeping /usr/bin
  • beeping
$ ./beeping -h
Usage of ./beeping:
  -geodatfile string
        geoIP database path (default "/opt/GeoIP/GeoLite2-City.mmdb")
  -instance string
        beeping instance name (default hostname)
  -listen string
        The host to bind the server to (default "127.0.0.1")
  -port string
        The port to bind the server to (default "8080")
  -tlsmode
        Activate SSL/TLS versions and Cipher support checks (slow)
  -validatetarget
          Perform some security checks on the target provided (default true)

Notes

  • If no GeoIP database is found, BeePing omit geo response silently
  • TLSMode returns more infos on SSL object. It tries the more ciphers and TLS version Golang can test but the checks can be way slower.

Optional

You can plug MaxMind GeoIP file to know on which country the pings goes.

See: http://dev.maxmind.com/geoip/geoip2/geolite2/

Build

Beeping is known to only compile with Golang 1.8.x + (see #14 )

go get -u github.com/golang/dep
go get -u github.com/yanc0/beeping
cd $GOPATH/src/github.com/yanc0/beeping
