Supermarket Belongs to the Community

Supermarket belongs to the community. While Chef has the responsibility to keep it running and be stewards of its functionality, what it does and how it works is driven by the community. The chef/supermarket repository will continue to be where development of the Supermarket application takes place. Come be part of shaping the direction of Supermarket by opening issues and pull requests or by joining us on the Chef Mailing List.

Datadog Cookbook

Chef recipes to deploy Datadog's components and configuration automatically.

Requirements

  • chef >= 10.14

Platforms

  • Amazon Linux
  • CentOS
  • Debian
  • RedHat
  • Scientific Linux
  • Ubuntu
  • Windows (requires chef >= 12.0)

Cookbooks

The following Opscode cookbooks are dependencies:

  • apt
  • chef_handler
  • windows
  • yum

Recipes

default

Just a placeholder for now, when we have more shared components they will probably live there.

dd-agent

Installs the Datadog agent on the target system, sets the API key, and start the service to report on the local system metrics

dd-handler

Installs the chef-handler-datadog gem and invokes the handler at the end of a Chef run to report the details back to the newsfeed.

dogstatsd-(python|ruby)

Installs the language-specific libraries to interact with dogstatsd.

other

There are many other integration-specific recipes, that are meant to assist in deploying the correct agent configuration files and dependencies for a given integration.

Usage

  1. Add this cookbook to your Chef Server, either by installing with knife or by adding it to your Berksfile: cookbook 'datadog', '~> 2.1.0'
  2. Add your API Key as a node attribute via an environment or role or by declaring it in another cookbook at a higher precedence level.
  3. Create an 'application key' for chef_handler here, and add it as a node attribute, as in Step #2.
  4. Associate the recipes with the desired roles, i.e. "role:chef-client" should contain "datadog::dd-handler" and a "role:base" should start the agent with "datadog::dd-agent". Here's an example role with both recipes: ``` name 'example' description 'Example role using DataDog'

default_attributes( 'datadog' => { 'api_key' => 'api_key', 'application_key' => 'app_key' } )

run_list %w( recipe[datadog::dd-agent] recipe[datadog::dd-handler] ) `` 5. Wait untilchef-client` runs on the target node (or trigger chef-client manually if you're impatient)

We are not making use of data_bags in this recipe at this time, as it is unlikely that you will have more than one API key and one application key.

Changes

2.2.0 / 2015-10-27

2.1.0 / 2015-04-20

NOTE This has been broken for some time, and has had multiple attempts at fixing properly. The correct interface has never been documented, and the implementation has always been left up to the reader. We have changed this to be much simpler - instead of trying to account for any possible methods

  • [BUGFIX] Correct cassandra template render flags, @miketheman
  • [DOCS] Remove suggestion for python cookbook, as it is no longer needed. @miketheman
  • [MISC] Updates to test suite for simplicity, deprecation warnings, dependencies @miketheman & @darron

2.0.0 / 2014-08-22

  • BREAKING CHANGE: Datadog Agent 5.0.0 Release Edition

With the release of Datadog Agent 5.x, all Python dependencies are now bundled, and extensions for monitoring are no longer needed. Integration-specific recipes no longer install any packages, so if you are using a version older than 5.x, you may have to install these yourself. This greatly simplifies deployment of all components for monitoring. See commit b77582122f3db774a838f90907b421e544dd099c for the exact package resources that have been removed. Affected recipes:

  • hdfs
  • memcache
  • mongodb
  • mysql
  • postgres
  • redisdb

    • BREAKING CHANGE: Removed chef_gem support for Chef versions pre 0.10.9.

We haven't supported this version of Chef in some time, so it's unlikely that you will be affected at all. Just in case, please review what versions of Chef you have installed, and use an older version of this cookbook until you can upgrade them.

  • [OPTIMIZE] Update repository recipe to choose correct arch, @remh
  • [OPTIMIZE] Remove conditional python dep for Ubuntu 11.04, @miketheman
  • [OPTIMIZE] Remove extra apt-get call during Agent recipe run, @miketheman
  • [FEATURE] Add kafka monitoring recipe & tests, #113 @qqfr2507
  • [FEATURE] Allow database name to be passed into postgres template, @miketheman
  • [MISC] Many updates to testing suite. Faster style, better specs. @miketheman

1.2.0 / 2014-03-24

1.1.1 / 2013-10-17

  • [FEATURE] added rabbitmq recipe and template, @miketheman
  • [BUGFIX] memcache dependencies and template, #67 @elijahandrews
  • [BUGFIX] redis python client check was not properly checking the default version, @remh
  • [MISC] tailor 1.3.1 caught some cosmetic issue, @alq

1.1.0 / 2013-08-20

Dependency Note

One of the dependencies of this cookbook is the apt cookbook. A change introduced in the apt cookbook 2.0.0 release was a Chef 11-specific feature that would break on any Chef 10 system, so we considered adding a restriction in our metadata.rb to anything below 2.0.0.

A fix has gone in to apt 2.1.0 that relaxes this condition, and plays well with both Chef 10 and 11. We recommend using this version, or higher.

1.0.1 / 2013-05-14

  • Fixed iis and rabbitmq template syntax - #58 @gregf
  • Updated style/spacing in ActiveMQ template
  • Updated test suite to validate cookbook & templates
  • Updated chefignore to clean the built cookbook from containing cruft

1.0.0 / 2013-05-06

  • BREAKING CHANGE: Moved all attributes into datadog namespace - #46 (#23, #26)

Reasoning behind this was that originally we attempted to auto-detect many common attributes and deploy automatic monitoring for them. We found that since inclusion of the datadog cookbook early in the run list caused the compile phase to be populated with our defaults (mostly nil), instead of the desired target, and namespacing of the attributes became necessary.

  • NEW PROVIDER: Added a new datadog_monitor provider for integration use

The new provider is used in many pre-provided integration recipes, such as datadog::apache. This enables a run list to include this recipe, as well as populate a node attribute with the needed instance details to monitor the given service

  • Updated dependencies in Gemfile, simplifies travis build - #34, #55
  • Much improved test system (chefspec, test-kitchen) - #35 & others
  • Tests against multiple versions of Chef - #18
  • Added language-specific recipes for installing dogstatsd - (#28)
  • Added ability to control dogstatsd from agent config via attribute - #27
  • Placed the dogstatsd log file in /var/log/ instead of /tmp
  • Added attribute to configure dogstreams in datadog.conf - #37
  • Updated for platform_family semantics
  • Added node['datadog']['agent_version'] attribute
  • (Handler Recipe) Better handling of EC2 instance ID for Handler - #44
  • Updated for agent 3.6.x logging syntax
  • Generated config file removes some whitespace - #56
  • Removed dependency on yum::epel, only uses yum for the repository recipe
