Server Density plugin to monitor IronMQs

Project description

A plugin for the Server Density agent that monitors IronMQ queues using API version 3.

PyPI page | GitHub project

For details how to write one, read the official docs on plugins. Or find more official plugins.

Features

  • Monitors all queues of the given projects.

  • Recorded metrics:
    • size (key: <projectid/-name>:<queuename>:size)

    • total_messages (key: <projectid/-name>:<queuename>:size)

Example for metric keys:

billingproject:invoicequeue:size
billingproject:invoicequeue:total_messages

How to use

Install via PyPI or …

Get it from pypi, installing it somewhere:

pip install sd-ironmq

Symlink it to your plugin directory, on Debian/Ubuntu by default: /usr/bin/sd-agent/plugins

Install via curl

curl the latest version from GitHub directly into your Plugin directory:

curl https://raw.githubusercontent.com/engagespark/sd-ironmq/master/IronMQ.py > /usr/bin/sd-agent/plugins/IronMQ.py

Configure

Add this section to your /etc/sd-agent/config.cfg:

[IronMQ]
host=mq-aws-eu-west-1-1.iron.io
# comma separated list of project IDs
project_ids=<your-project-ids>
token=<your-token>

Restart the agent

On Debian/Ubuntu:

service sd-agent restart

Other configuration options

Metric Keys: Use Project Names instead of IDs

Let’s say you configured the queues of your billing project to be monitored:

project_ids=2342934839ai239ai89i

For a queue invoices, the metric keys would look like so:

2342934839ai239ai89i:invoices:size
2342934839ai239ai89i:invoices:total_messages

That’s not beautiful, nor understandable. Also it exposes IronMQ internals unnecessarily. Configure a name for the project ID like so:

2342934839ai239ai89i.name=billing

The name is then used in the keys:

billing:invoices:size
billing:invoices:total_messages

Test locally

Create an example.cfg in the working directory:

[IronMQ]
host=mq-aws-eu-west-1-1.iron.io
project_ids=<your-project-ids>
token=<your-token>

Run the plugin:

python IronMQ.py

Releasing

Prepare

  1. Install twine and wheel:
