Declarative configuration library for Uptime Robot

Project Description

Declarative configuration library for Uptime Robot

urconf is a Python library for Uptime Robot <https://uptimerobot.com/> API. It expects definition of all your contacts and monitors, and then issues API calls required to configure your Uptime Robot accordingly.

Usage

Install urconf using pip: pip install urconf

Write your monitoring configuration as a Python script:

import logging
import urconf

# urconf logs all operations that change configuration at the INFO level.
# Use DEBUG to see API call contents.
logging.basicConfig(level=logging.INFO)

config = urconf.UptimeRobot("api-key")  # dry_run=True enables dry mode

# Define contacts
email = config.email_contact("me@example.com")
boxcar = config.boxcar_contact("boxcar-api-key", "my boxcar")

# Define monitors
ssh = config.port_monitor("ssh on server1", "server1.example.com", 22)
web = config.keyword_monitor(
    "my site", "https://example.com/", "welcome to example.com!")
# More complex example with HTTP auth and non-standard monitoring interval
backend = config.keyword_monitor(
    "my backend", "https://admin.example.com", "Cannot connect to database",
    should_exist=False, http_username="admin", http_password="password",
    interval=20)

# Associate contacts with monitors
for monitor in (ssh, web, backend):
    monitor.add_contacts(email, boxcar)

# Sync configuration to Uptime Robot
config.sync()

Run the script to sync configuration.

Functionality

Currently implemented:

  • email and boxcar contacts;
  • keyword and port monitors.

Pull requests extending supported types of contacts or monitors are very welcome.

Caveats

Since uptimerobot API does not support modifying contacts, when contact modification is detected, urconf has to remove the old contact and re-add it. This means that e-mail contacts have to be re-verified manually again.

Development notes

  • refer to API documentation <https://uptimerobot.com/api> while implementing additional functionality;
  • run tox to run the tests in Python 2.7 and 3.4 environments;
  • run make html in docs/ to build documentation in HTML. It can be viewed in docs/_build/html/ afterwards.
