takipi

Takipi installs a daemon process and a JVM agent library on your servers. These two components work in tandem to log and send data to Takipi's analysis servers. Together they detect events (such as exceptions or logged errors) happening within your app and automatically create the code needed to log and collect the data you'll need to debug these errors in production.

Overview

This module handles installation of JVM and Takipi agent.

Currently supports RPM and DEB-based Linux distributions.

Module Description

Takipi installs a daemon process and a JVM agent library on your servers. These two components work in tandem to log and send data to Takipi's analysis servers. Together they detect events (such as exceptions or logged errors) happening within your app and automatically create the code needed to log and collect the data you'll need to debug these errors in production.

Setup

What takipi affects

  • Installs Java on the node that Takipi is to be installed, handled by puppetlabs-java module.
  • Installs Takipi base package.
  • Adds the Takipi secret key (found under /opt/takipi/work/secret.key) and completes package installation.

Setup Requirements

Requires;

  • puppetlabs-stdlib
  • puppetlabs-java

Beginning with takipi

Create your account at https://app.takipi.com/account.html and get your secret key.

Development

Pull requests are greatly appreciated, please keep proper indentation.

Beaker tests are awesome, feel free to throw some in.

Testing

Under tests/ there is a Vagrantfile that can be used to test Takipi module. Currently two boxes are added for tests, Centos 6.5 and Ubuntu 13.10 provided by Puppetlabs.

Make sure to add a valid secret key in tests/manifests/takipi.pp.

Usage:

vagrant up takipi_centos

vagrant up takipi_ubuntu
