            Linux IP monitoring tool
            Asked 2022-Apr-08 at 16:12

            I need to get the IP numbers that are connecting to the EC2 instance then add them to AWS security group as a security group rule. So only those machines will have the permission to connect to instance. I don't need the port number that they're connecting to instance.

            I installed iptraf-ng but app is very slow on the instance. Any other suggestions to capture the connecting IP's to instance so I can add them faster to security group rule?



            Answered 2022-Apr-08 at 16:12

            You can use VPC Flow logs to monitor the traffic to the VPC (which will include the traffic that is going to the EC2 instance).



            how to check service running on other server with python
            Asked 2022-Mar-14 at 13:12

            I have a problem with checking my service on other windows or Linux servers.

            My problem is that I have to make a request from one server to the other servers and check if the vital services of those servers are active or disabled.

            I wrote Python code to check for services, which only works on a local system.



            Answered 2022-Mar-08 at 17:46

            As far as I know, psutil can only be used for gathering information about local processes, and is not suitable for retrieving information about processes running on other hosts. If you want to check whether or not a process is running on another host, there are many ways to approach this problem, and the solution depends on how deep you want to go (or need to go), and what your local situation is. From the top of my head, here are some ideas:

            If you are only dealing with network services with exposed ports:

            • A very simple solution would involve using a script and a port scanner (nmap); if a port that a service is listening behind, is open, then we can assume that the service is running. Run the script every once in a while to check up on the services, and do your thing.

            • If you want to stay in Python, you can achieve the same end result by using Python's socket module to try and connect to a given host and port to determine whether or not the port that a service is listening behind, is open.

            • A Python package or tool for monitoring network services on other hosts like this probably already exists.

            If you want more information and need to go deeper, or you want to check up on local services, your solution will have to involve a local monitor process on each host, and connecting to that process to gather information.

            • You can use your code to implement a server that lets clients connect to it, to check up on the services running on that host. (Check the socket module's official documentation for examples on how to implement clients and servers.)

            Here's the big thing though. Based on your question and how it was asked, I would assume that you do not have the experience nor the insight to implement this in a secure way yet. If you're using this for a simple hobby/student project, roll out your own solution, and learn. Otherwise, I would recommend that you check out an existing solution like Nagios, and follow the security recommendations very closely.



            Differentiate databricks streaming queries in datadog
            Asked 2022-Mar-11 at 18:18

            I am trying to set up a dashboard on Datadog that will show me the streaming metrics for my streaming job. The job itself contains two tasks one task has 2 streaming queries and the other has 4 (Both tasks use the same cluster). I followed the instructions here to install Datadog on the driver node. However when I go to datadog and try to create a dashboard there is no way to differentiate between the 6 different streaming queries so they are all lumped together (none of the tags for the metrics are different per query).



            Answered 2022-Mar-11 at 18:18

            After some digging I found there is an option you can enable via the init script called enable_query_name_tag which is disabled by default as it can cause there to be a ton of tags created when you are not using query names.

            The modification is shown here:

            There is a second config file with experimental options related to HTTP server, and it has options to enable TLS:



            Prometheus service discovery with docker-compose

            Answered 2022-Feb-19 at 17:59

            The solution to this problem is to use an actual service discovery instead of static targets. This way Prometheus will scrape each replica during each iteration.

            If it is just docker-compose (I mean, not Swarm), you can use DNS service discovery (dns_sd_config) to obtain all IPs belonging to a service:



            Where can I get node exporter metrics description?
            Asked 2022-Feb-10 at 08:34

            I'm new to monitoring the k8s cluster with prometheus, node exporter and so on.

            I want to know that what the metrics exactly mean for though the name of metrics are self descriptive.

            I already checked the github of node exporter, but I got not useful information.

            Where can I get the descriptions of node exporter metrics?




            Answered 2022-Feb-10 at 08:34

            There is a short description along with each of the metrics. You can see them if you open node exporter in browser or just curl http://my-node-exporter:9100/metrics. You will see all the exported metrics and lines with # HELP are the description ones:

            Integrate GCP with OpsGenie for Alerts
            Asked 2022-Jan-26 at 08:39

            It may be a vague question but I couldn't find any documentation regarding the same. Does Google cloud platform have provision to integrate with OpsGenie?

            Basically we have set up few alerts in GCP for our Kubernetes Cluster monitoring and we want them to be feeded to OpsGenie for Automatic call outs in case of high priority incidents.

            Is it possible?

            Recapping for better visibility:

            OpsGenie supports multiple tools, including Google Stackdriver.
            Instruction on how to integrate it with Stackdriver webhooks can be found here.

            Install newrelic-unix-plugin

            The newrelic.json is a standardized file containing configuration information that applies to any plugin (e.g. license key, logging, proxy settings), so going forward you will be able to copy a single newrelic.json file from one plugin to another. Below is a list of the configuration fields that can be managed through this file:.
            Download the latest version of the agent: newrelic_unix_plugin.tar.gz
            Gunzip & untar on Unix server that you want to monitor
            Configure config/newrelic.json
            Click here for newrelic.json config details
            OPTIONAL: Copy config/plugin.json from the OS-specific templates in config and configure that file.
            Click here for plugin.json config details
            OPTIONAL: Configure to have the correct paths to Java and your plugin location
            Set PLUGIN_JAVA to the location of Java on your server (including the "java" filename)
            Set PLUGIN_PATH to the location of the Unix Plugin
            Run chmod +x to make the startup script executable (if it isn't already)
            Run ./ start from command-line
            Check logs (in logs directory by default) for errors
            Login to New Relic UI and find your plugin instance
            In the New Relic UI, select "Plugins" from the top level accordion menu
            Check for the "Unix" plugin in left-hand column. Click on it, your instance should appear in the list.
            Your New Relic license key is the only required field in the newrelic.json file as it is used to determine what account you are reporting to.
            Your license key can be found in New Relic UI, on 'Account settings' page.
            log_level - The log level. Valid values: [debug, info, warn, error, fatal]. Defaults to info. debug will expose the metrics being collected by each command.
            log_file_name - The log file name. Defaults to newrelic_plugin.log.
            log_file_path - The log file path. Defaults to logs.
            log_limit_in_kbytes - The log file limit in kilobytes. Defaults to 25600 (25 MB). If limit is set to 0, the log file size will not be limited.
            proxy_host - The proxy host (e.g.
            proxy_port - The proxy port (e.g. 8080). Defaults to 80 if a proxy_host is set
            proxy_username - The proxy username
            proxy_password - The proxy password
            Configurations in the agents array override what's in the global object. I.e. If you want to turn on debug for one statement, you can set the debug object to false in the global object, and set it to true in that command's agent object.
            If you choose to use the old versions of plugin.json (without a global option), those will work fine.
            OS - The OS you are monitoring. If left out, it will use the "auto" setting, in which the plugin will detect your OS type. Normally the "auto" setting works fine. If not, you can define it as any of: [aix, linux, sunos, osx].
            debug - This is an extra debug setting to use when a specific command isn't reporting properly. Enabling it will prevent metrics from being sent to New Relic. Seeing metrics in logs also requires setting "log_level": "debug" in newrelic.json.
            hostname - To override the hostname that appears in the UI for this instance, set this option to any string that you want. If you leave this option out, the plugin will obtain your hostname from the JVM (
