Alerta Release 7.0
The Alerta monitoring tool was developed with the following aims in mind:
- distributed and de-coupled so that it is SCALABLE
- minimal CONFIGURATION that easily accepts alerts from any source
- quick at-a-glance VISUALISATION with drill-down to detail
Python 2.7 support is EOL
Starting with Release 6.0 only Python 3.5+ is supported. Release 5.2 was the last to support Python 2.7 and feature enhancements for this release ended on August 31, 2018. Only critical bug fixes will be backported to Release 5.2.
The only mandatory dependency is MongoDB or PostgreSQL. Everything else is optional.
- Postgres version 9.5 or better
- MongoDB version 3.6 or better (4.0.7 required for full query syntax support)
To install MongoDB on Debian/Ubuntu run:
$ sudo apt-get install -y mongodb-org $ mongod
To install MongoDB on CentOS/RHEL run:
$ sudo yum install -y mongodb $ mongod
To install the Alerta server and client run:
$ pip install alerta-server alerta $ alertad run
To install the web console run:
$ wget https://github.com/alerta/alerta-webui/releases/latest/download/alerta-webui.tar.gz $ tar zxvf alerta-webui.tar.gz $ cd dist $ python3 -m http.server 8000 >> browse to http://localhost:8000
Alerta and MongoDB can also run using Docker containers, see alerta/docker-alerta.
To configure the
alertad server override the default settings in
ALERTA_SVR_CONF_FILE environment variable::
$ ALERTA_SVR_CONF_FILE=~/.alertad.conf $ echo "DEBUG=True" > $ALERTA_SVR_CONF_FILE
More information on configuration and other aspects of alerta can be found at http://docs.alerta.io
To run in development mode, listening on port 5000:
$ export FLASK_APP=alerta FLASK_ENV=development $ pip install -e . $ flask run
To run in development mode, listening on port 8080, using Postgres and reporting errors to Sentry:
$ export FLASK_APP=alerta FLASK_ENV=development $ export DATABASE_URL=postgres://localhost:5432/alerta5 $ export SENTRY_DSN=https://8b56098250544fb78b9578d8af2a7e13:email@example.com/153768 $ pip install -e .[postgres] $ flask run --debugger --port 8080 --with-threads --reload
Enable debug log output by setting
DEBUG=True in the API server
DEBUG=True LOG_HANDLERS = ['console','file'] LOG_FORMAT = 'verbose' LOG_FILE = '$HOME/alertad.log'
To run the all the tests there must be a local Postgres and MongoDB database running. Then run:
$ TOXENV=ALL make test
To just run the Postgres or MongoDB tests run:
$ TOXENV=postgres make test $ TOXENV=mongodb make test
To run a single test run something like:
$ TOXENV="mongodb -- tests/test_search.py::QueryParserTestCase::test_boolean_operators" make test $ TOXENV="postgres -- tests/test_queryparser.py::PostgresQueryTestCase::test_boolean_operators" make test
Alerta can be deployed to the cloud easily using Heroku https://github.com/alerta/heroku-api-alerta, AWS EC2 https://github.com/alerta/alerta-cloudformation, or Google Cloud Platform https://github.com/alerta/gcloud-api-alerta
