This one is long overdue, but finally here: Butler SOS v2.0
The new version is an almost complete re-write of v1.0. Changes are plentiful and include
- All warnings and errors stored by Sense in its log database are now pulled into Butler SOS, from where it can be graphed and acted upon.
This is a big deal, as it was previously not possible to get notifications or alerts when errors or warnings started to pile up in the logs.
- Operational health metrics are still pulled from Qlik Sense, but this is now done directly from the QIX engine rather than via a hard-to-secure virtual proxy.
- Using certificates for authentication with Sense removes potential security issues with v1.0.
- Config file is now YAML instead of JSON. More human readable and with inline comments.
- Config file now allows for more fine-grained control of Butler SOS.
- Several bugs fixed, especially around sending metrics to MQTT.
The readme file on GitHub has all the details, here are some screen shots to get you started though:
