Creating and managing website and port probes
- The CopperEgg Cookbook contains a LightWeight Resource Provider (LWRP) for simplifying the automation of CopperEgg probes.
- To create a copperegg probe, you need to include something similar to the following example:
copperegg_probe "ChefProbe2" do provider "copperegg_probe" action :update # update will create or update probe_desc 'ChefProbe2' # the 'name' of the probe probe_dest "http://yoursite.com" # the URL to test type 'GET' # the test type; in this case, an HTTP GET request stations ['dal','nrk'] # override the defaults and specify testing from Dallas and Fremont end
- You can find descriptions of all required and optional fields in copperegg/resources/probe.rb.
- Refer to the Probe section of the CopperEgg API for further details: CopperEgg Probe API
Creating Annotations in the CopperEgg UI for chef run events.
- The CopperEgg Cookbook includes integration with the Chef Report and Exception Handlers. To enable this functionality:
- include the chef_handler cookbook from Opscode in your chef repo, and in your run list.
- include the recipe copperegg-handler.rb in your run list. That's it!
- By default, each chef run will create a annotation at copperegg only when the chef run fails.
- You can change this behavior by changing the [:copperegg][:annotate_chefrun_success] and [:copperegg][:annotate_chefrun_fail] attributes.
