observer_cli

Build Status GitHub tag MIT License Hex.pm Version Hex.pm Downloads

Visualize Erlang/Elixir Nodes On The Command Line base on recon. Document in detail.

Goal

  • Provide a high-performance tool usable both in development and production settings.
  • Focus on important and detailed information about real-time running system.
  • Keep minimal consumption.

Installation

Erlang

%% rebar.config
{deps, [observer_cli]}
%% erlang.mk
dep_observer_cli = hex 1.5.4

Elixir

# mix.exs
   def deps do
     [{:observer_cli, "~> 1.5"}]
   end

How-To

Try in local shell.

%% rebar3 project
rebar3 shell
1> observer_cli:start().
%% mix project
iex -S mix
iex(1)> :observer_cli.start

Monitor remote node

%% rebar3 project
rebar3 shell --name 'observer_cli@127.0.0.1'
1> observer_cli:start('target@host', 'magic_cookie').
%% mix project
iex --name "observer_cli@127.0.0.1" -S mix
iex(1)> :observer_cli.start(:'target@host', :'magic_cookie')

ensure observer_cli application been loaded on target node.

Try in Elixir 1.9.x release

%% create elixir release
mix release
%% rpc current node
_build/dev/rel/example/bin/example rpc ":observer_cli.start"

ensure observer_cli application been loaded on current node.

Escriptize

  1. cd path/to/observer_cli/
  2. rebar3 escriptize to generate an escript executable containing the project's and its dependencies' BEAM files. Place script(_build/default/bin/observer_cli) anywhere in your path and use observer_cli command.
  3. observer_cli TARGETNODE [TARGETCOOKIE REFRESHMS] to monitor remote node.

How to write your own plugin?

If you need to customize some of your internal metrics and integrate it into observer_ci, you only need to write a observer_cli_plugin behaviour in a few simple steps to get a nice presentation.

  1. Configure observer_cli,tell observer_cli how to find your plugin.
%% module       - Specific module implements plugin behavior. It's mandatory.
%% title        - Menu title. It's mandatory.
%% shortcut     - Switch plugin by shortcut. It's mandatory.
%% interval     - Refresh interval ms. It's optional. default is 1500ms.
%% sort_column  - Sort the sheet by this index. It's optional default is 2.

{plugins,
  [
    #{module => observer_cli_plug_behaviour1, title => "XPlug",
      interval => 1500, shortcut => "X", sort_column => 3},
    #{module => observer_cli_plug_behaviour2, title => "YPlug",
      interval => 1600, shortcut => "Y", sort_column => 3}
  ]
}

  1. Write observer_cli_plugin behaviour. observer_cli_plugin has 3 callbacks.

2.1 attributes.

-callback atributes(PrevState) -> {[Rows], NewState} when
    Rows :: #{content => string()|integer()|{byte, pos_integer()},
              width => pos_integer(), color => binary()}.

for example:

attributes(PrevState) ->
    Attrs =
    [
        [
            #{content => "XXX Ets Size", width => 20},
            #{content => ets:info(xxx,size), width => 10},
            #{content => "Pool1 Size", width => 15},
            #{content => application:get_env(app,pool1_size), width => 30},
            #{content => "XYZ1 Process Mem", width => 18,
            #{content => {byte, element(2, erlang:process_info(xyz1, memory))}, width => 16}
        ],
        [
            #{content => "YYY Ets Size", width =>20},
            #{content => ets:info(yyy,size), width => 10},
            #{content => "Pool2 Size", width =>15},
            #{content => application:get_env(app,pool2_size), width => 30},
            #{content =>"XYZ2 Process Mem", width =>18},
            #{content => {byte, element(2, erlang:process_info(xyz2, memory))}, width => 16}
        ],
        [
            #{content => "ZZZ Ets Size", width =>20},
            #{content => ets:info(zzz,size), width => 10},
            #{content => "Pool3 Size", width =>15},
            #{content => application:get_env(app,pool3_size), width => 30},
            #{content => "XYZ3 Process Mem", width =>18},
            #{content => {byte, element(2, erlang:process_info(xyz3, memory))}, width => 16}
        ]
    ],
    NewState = PrevState,
    {Attrs, NewState}.

-callback sheet_header() -> [SheetHeader] when
    SheetHeader :: #{title => string(), width => pos_integer(), shortcut => string()}.

for example:

sheet_header() ->
    [
        #{title => "Pid", width => 25},
        #{title => "Status", width => 25},
        #{title => "Memory", width => 24, shortcut => "S"},
        #{title => "Reductions", width => 24, shortcut => "R"},
        #{title => "Message Queue Len", width => 25, shortcut => "Q"}
    ].
-callback sheet_body(PrevState) -> {[SheetBody], NewState} when
    PrevState :: any(),
    SheetBody :: list(),
    NewState :: any().

for example:

sheet_body(PrevState) ->
    Body =
      [begin
         [
             Pid,
             element(2, erlang:process_info(Pid, status)),
             element(2, erlang:process_info(Pid, memory)),
             element(2, erlang:process_info(Pid, reductions)),
             element(2, erlang:process_info(Pid, message_queue_len))
         ]
     end||Pid <- erlang:processes()
    ],
    NewState = PrevState,
    {Body, NewState}.

Support F/B to page up/down.

A more specific plugin can collect linux system information such as kernel vsn, loadavg, disk, memory usage, cpu utilization, IO statistics.
