Monitoring and statistical analysis system for a drove of systems
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://github.com/droveio/drove
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.
