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.

Scalyr Chef Recipes

Official Chef recipes to install the Scalyr Agent.

This is currently in BETA release. We are stil investigating the best way to support Chef users. Please send your feedback to support@scalyr.com.

Existing recipes have only been tested on chef 12.

The source code for this cookbook is available here

Recipes

default

Installs, configures, enables at boot, and starts the scalyr agent service.

agent

Same as default

install

Installs the agent, but does not update configuration or start the agent service

configure

Updates the config files of the agent to match the attributes assigned to a node. The agent will automatically detect new, modified, or deleted files so you don't need to restart it after a configuration change.

start

Enables the agent to start at boot, and starts the scalyr agent service.

Usage

Add the scalyr_agent cookbook to your Chef server:

knife cookbook site install scalyr_agent
knife cookbook upload scalyr_agent

The scalyr_agent cookbook supports the following attributes, which can be specified in a role, an environment or via other methods provided by chef such as on the command line.

  • api_key - Your scalyr write log API key. You can find your API key here.
  • logs - A hash that maps glob patterns of the files you want to to monitor with a Scalyr log parser.
  • server_attributes - A map of user specified server attributes that will be uploaded along with each log message.
  • scalyr_server - The url of the scalyr server to upload to. If not specified this defaults to our US server.

Here is an example role showing a sample configuration for a simple webserver:

name 'webserver'
description 'Installs the nginx webserver and monitors logs with scalyr'
run_list(
  'nginx',
  'scalyr_agent::agent'
)
default_attributes(
  'scalyr_agent' => {
    'api_key' => 'YOUR_API_KEY_GOES_HERE',
    'logs' => {
      '/var/log/nginx/*.log' => 'accessLog'
    },
    'server_attributes' => {
      'tier' => 'webserver'
    }
  }
)

This role will install nginx and the scalyr agent, and monitor all log files in the /var/log/nginx directory.

If you will run the scalyr_agent on all your nodes you can also set up a 'base' role so that you don't need to specify the API key each time:

name 'base'
description 'base role for nodes running the scalyr-agent'
run_list(
  'scalyr_agent::agent'
)
default_attributes(
  'scalyr_agent' => {
    'api_key' => 'YOUR_API_KEY_GOES_HERE'
  }
)
