A small CLI utility to monitor bbb usage
A small python based CLI utility to monitor BigBlueButton-Usage.
The easiest way to install bbbmon is to install it from the Python Package Index (PyPi). This project uses python poetry for dependency management, so you could also run it without installing the package system wide, see instructions below.
Install with pip3
sudo pip3 install bbbmon --upgrade
Then run with:
Run with poetry (without pip)
Clone the repo:
git clone https://code.hfbk.net/bbb/bbbmon.git
Make sure you have poetry installed. Install instruction for poetry can be found here. From inside the project directory run:
Run bbbmon with:
poetry run bbbmon
bbbmon config --new to create a new default configuration file. bbbmon will always ask you before it creates or overwrites anything.
Within the config you can define one or more endpoints with running bbb instances – each with it's secret and bigbluebutton-URL. You can find the secret on your server in it's config-file via
cat /usr/share/bbb-web/WEB-INF/classes/bigbluebutton.properties | grep securitySalt=
A example configuration file could look like this:
[bbb.example.com] securitySalt=MY_SUPER_SECRET_SECRET bigbluebutton.web.serverURL=https://bbb.example.com/ [Föö] securitySalt=MY_SUPER_SECRET_SECRET2 bigbluebutton.web.serverURL=https://bbb.foo.com/
The section names in the square brackets can be chosen arbitrarily (as long as they are unique) and will be used as display names (they support utf-8). It makes sense to keep them short as they can be used for filtering and/or ordering:
bbbmon meetings -e Föö
For help run:
bbbmon supports command abbreviations – these commands produce the same result:
bbbmon meetings bbbmon meeting bbbmon mee bbbmon m
This works as long as there is no other command starting with the same letters.
