Canopsis Connector which listen for JSON events on TCP port

Project Description

This package provides a connector which listen for events on a TCP port.


Run the script on a designated port (8000 in this example) and with the URL of the AMQP server :

$ tcp2canopsis -p 8000 -a "amqp://guest:guest@localhost:5672/" -t token

Then use telnet to publish events :

$ telnet localhost 8000
Trying ::1...
Connected to localhost.
Escape character is '^]'.
{"connector": "test", "connector_name": "testname", "event_type": "check", "source_type": "resource", "component": "testcmp", "resource": "testrsrc", "state": 0, "output": "test output"}
{"connector": "test", "connector_name": "testname", "event_type": "check", "source_type": "resource", "component": "testcmp", "resource": "testrsrc", "state": 1, "output": "test output 2"}
{"connector": "test", "connector_name": "testname", "event_type": "check", "source_type": "resource", "component": "testcmp", "resource": "testrsrc", "state": 0, "output": "test output 3"}
Connection closed by foreign host.

Or in a JSON file :

{"tcp2canopsis": {
    "port": 8000,
    "amqp": "amqp://guest:guest@localhost:5672/",
    "token": "token"

And load the file using :

$ tcp2canopsis -c path/to/config.json


Just type :

$ pip install tcp2canopsis

Or, to install it in a locally :

$ ./makefile

This will create a virtual Python environment in the current folder, and install the dependencies listed by requirements.txt. Finally, it will perform a python install.

After executing this script, the connector will be available in the current folder (which is now a virtual Python environment).
