Remarks[edit | edit source]

There currently aren't any installation packages provided for Bosun or Scollector, only binaries on the Bosun release page. It is up to the end user to find the best way to deploy the files and run them as a service.

Bosun systemd unit file[edit | edit source]

#Create Bosun unit file at /etc/systemd/system/bosun.service
[Unit]
Description=Bosun Service
After=network.target
After=rsyslog.service

[Service]
Type=simple
User=root
ExecStart=/opt/bosun/bosun -c /opt/bosun/config/prod.conf
Restart=on-abort

[Install]
WantedBy=multi-user.target

#enable and start service
#systemctl enable bosun
#systemctl start bosun
#If you edit this file, be sure to run `systemctl daemon reload` so Systemd recognizes the changes made

TSDBRelay systemd unit file[edit | edit source]

TSDBRelay can be used to forward metrics to an OpenTSDB instance, send to Bosun for indexing, and relay to another opentsdb compatible instance for backup/DR/HA. It also has options to denormalize metrics with high tag cardinality or create redis/ledis backed external counters.

#Create tsdbrelay unit file at /etc/systemd/system/tsdbrelay.service
[Unit]
Description=tsdbrelay Service
After=network.target

[Service]
Type=simple
User=root
ExecStart=/opt/tsdbrelay/tsdbrelay -b localhost:8070 -t localhost:4242 -l 0.0.0.0:5252  -r localhost:4243 #Local tsdb/bosun and influxdb opentsdb endpoint at 4243
#For external counters add: -redis redishostname:6379 -db 0
#For denormalized metrics: -denormalize=os.cpu__host,os.mem.used__host,os.net.bytes__host,os.net.bond.bytes__host,os.net.other.bytes__host,os.net.tunnel.bytes__host,os.net.virtual.bytes__host
Restart=on-abort

[Install]

Scollector init.d script[edit | edit source]

Bosun init.d script[edit | edit source]

Here is an init.d script for Bosun that includes setting Environmental Variables that can be used to hide secrets from the raw config. It uses http://software.clapper.org/daemonize/ to run the program as a daemon.

#!/bin/sh
#
# /etc/rc.d/init.d/bosun
# bosun

# chkconfig: - 98 02

Scollector systemd unit file[edit | edit source]

#Create Scollector unit file at /etc/systemd/system/scollector.service
[Unit]

After=network.target

Type=simple
User=root
ExecStart=/opt/scollector/scollector -h mybosunserver.example.com
Restart=on-abort

#enable and start service
#systemctl enable scollector

Scollector and Bosun Packages for Chef/Puppet/Vagrant/Ansible[edit | edit source]

Chef Scollector Cookbook: https://github.com/alexmbird/chef-scollector

Chef Bosun Cookbook: https://github.com/ptqa/chef-bosun

Puppet scollector module: https://github.com/axibase/axibase-puppet-modules

Bosun Ansible/Vagrant example: https://github.com/gnosek/bosun-deploy

Install scollector on CentOS 7[edit | edit source]

As a privileged user (root or sudo):

Create scollector directory:

mkdir /opt/scollector

In the /opt/scollector directory, download the latest binary build from the bosun/scollector site, [http://bosun.org/scollector/%5D%5B1%5D

wget https://github.com/bosun-monitor/bosun/releases/download/"version"/scollector-"OS"-"arch"

ex:

wget https://github.com/bosun-monitor/bosun/releases/download/0.5.0/scollector-linux-amd64

Create a symbolic link in /usr/local/bin:

ln -s /opt/scollector/scollector-linux-amd64 /usr/local/bin/scollector

Create the configuration directory;

mkdir /etc/scollector

Using this guide create your scollector configuration file, scollector.toml

The path for the configuration file is then /etc/scollector/scollector.conf

ex:

 Host = "http://xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx:8070" #replace xxx with the IP of your Bosun server
    Hostname = "DevOps-Bosun-Prod"
    [[ICMP]]
      Host = "some.hostname.here"
    [[ICMP]]
      Host = "some.other.hostname.here"
    [tags]
      hostgroup = "system"
    #[[GoogleAnalytics]]
    #  ClientID = ""
    #  Secret = ""
    #  Token = ""

Create the Service file, /etc/systemd/system/scollector.service

ex:

[Unit]
Description=Scollector Service
After=network.target

[Service]
Type=simple
User=root
ExecStart=/usr/local/bin/scollector -conf=/etc/scollector/scollector.toml
Restart=on-abort

[Install]
WantedBy=multi-user.target

Tell Systemd that you have created a new service:

systemctl enable scollector.service

Start scollector:

systemctl start scollector

You can see if scollector has started by running:

systemctl status scollector

Alternatively, you can view the system message log, you're looking for something like:

Jul 29 23:19:27 bosun-prod systemd: Started Scollector Service.
Jul 29 23:19:27 bosun-prod systemd: Starting Scollector Service...
Jul 29 23:19:27 bosun-prod scollector[4363]: info: main.go:213: OpenTSDB host: http://127.0.0.1:8070
