Monitoring and statistical analysis system for a drove of systems

Project Description

drove is a modern monitoring tool which support alerting (with escalation), auto-register nodes, statistics gathering and much more in a few lines of python code.


The stable releases of drove will be uploaded to PyPi, so you can install and upgrade versions using pip:

pip install drove

You can use unstable versions at your risk using pip as well:

pip install -e git://

By the way: drove works better with python3, but 2.7 is also supported.


You need to configure drove to enable the features that you like to use. In fact drove act as a producer-consumer daemon, which means that there are read plugins and write plugins.

  • A reader read a metric or an event from somewhere and report it to drove (in a internal cache).
  • A consumer write a metric (taken from the internal cache) in somewhere.

Some plugins can act as reader and writer at the same time.

By default drove start with a very basic readers configured.

To start the daemon just type:

drove -c myconfig.conf daemon

You can avoid to daemonize with --no-daemon option in the command line.


drove is under heavy development. If you want to contribute, please us the usual github worflow:

  1. Clone the repo
  2. Hack!
  3. Make a pull-request
  4. Merged!

If you don’t have programming skills, just open a issue in the Github project.
