Installing Surveil

Surveil is currently packaged for Centos 7. You can install it via our custom repositories.

0. Installing the repositories

Install the RDO repositories with the following command:

yum install -y

Install the Surveil repositories with the following command:

yum install -y yum-utils
yum-config-manager --add-repo

1. Installing Surveil

All-in-One installation: survei-full

Surveil does not work with SELinux yet. To disable it, use the following commands:

echo 0 >  /sys/fs/selinux/enforce
sed -i 's/SELINUX=.*/SELINUX=disabled/g' /etc/selinux/config

Install surveil-full with the following command:

yum install -y surveil-full --nogpgcheck

Due to an issue with MongoDB presenting itself as running before it is ready, start it 20 seconds before the other services:

systemctl start mongod.service

Launch all surveil services with the following command:

systemctl start

The surveil-init command will flush existing MongoDB Alignak config, create an InfluxDB database and upload configuration templates to Alignak:

surveil-init --mongodb --influxdb --packs

The surveil-webui-init command will pre-create data sources in Grafana:

surveil-webui-init -H localhost -U root -P root -p 8086 -N db -g "http://localhost/surveil/grafana"

2. Testing the API

You should now be able to use the API:

surveil status-host-list
surveil config-host-list
