Monitor and Control a Tons of processes of your OS with AWS Supervisor

Supervisor is a client/server system that allows to monitor and control a number of processes on UNIX-like operating systems.

The components of the Supervisor are:

  • supervisord
  • supervisorctl
  • Web Server
  • XML-RPC Interface

Pre-requirement:

You have to install python on your server.

Installing Supervisor

By downloading the Supervisor package by the command

#apt-get install python-setuptools
sudo easy_install supervisor

monitor-and-control-os-aws

Now reboot your server and chillout.

Now we have to create a file inside the Etc folder and named supervisor. Follow below command:

sudo mkdir /etc/supervisor

Run the command echo_supervisord_conf to print a “sample” Supervisor configuration file to your terminal stdout.

echo_supervisord_conf

monitor-and-control-os-aws

Next, type the command as below as a root:

echo_supervisord_conf > /etc/supervisor/supervisord.conf

[include]
files=conf.d/*.conf

monitor-and-control-os-aws

Starting the supervisor server

Firstly, create a file called supervisord.service in the /etc/systemd/system directory.

touch /etc/systemd/system/supervisord.service

Open it with vim and add the following below to the file.

[Unit]

Description=Supervisor daemon

Documentation=http://supervisord.org

After=network.target

[Service]

ExecStart=/usr/local/bin/supervisord -n -c

/etc/supervisor/supervisord.conf

ExecStop=/usr/local/bin/supervisorctl $OPTIONS

shutdown

ExecReload=/usr/local/bin/supervisorctl $OPTIONS

reload

KillMode=process

Restart=on-failure

RestartSec=42s

[Install]

WantedBy=multi-user.target

Alias=supervisord.service

monitor-and-control-os-aws

Save the file using :wq!

And start the supervised service by the following command and see the status.

systemctl start supervisord.service
systemctl status supervisord.service

monitor-and-control-os-aws

Adding a Program

Now we are going to add the script.

supervisor_cw_hello.sh.

sudo touch supervisor_cw_hello.sh

sudo nano supervisor_cw_hello.sh

#!/bin/bash

while true

do

echo "This is xyz"

# Echo current timestamp to stdout

echo Hello Supervisor: `date`

# Echo 'error!' to stderr

echo An error occurred at `date`! >&2

sleep 1

done

Make the script executable with the command below:

sudo chmod +x supervisor_cw_hello.sh

sudo touch /etc/supervisor/conf.d/supervisor_cw_hello.conf

Add the following with nano

[program:supervisor_cw_hello]
command=/home/ayo/supervisor_cw_hello.sh
autostart=true
autorestart=true
stderr_logfile=/var/log/hello.err.log
stdout_logfile=/var/log/hello.out.log

After successfully adding a new program, we should run the following two commands.

sudo supervisorctl reread

sudo supervisorctl update

sudo supervisorctl 

monitor-and-control-os-aws

You can see the process called supervisor_cw_hello with a RUNNING status.

To see all available commands, type help

monitor-and-control-os-aws

The Web Server Client: To allow access to the supervisord web server, open the supervisord configuration file and locate the [inet_http_server] section.

sudo nano /etc/supervisor/supervisord.conf

monitor-and-control-os-aws

Edit the following configuration

[inet_http_server]

port=*:9001

username=user

password=123

monitor-and-control-os-aws

Add username and password and restart the service

sudo systemctl restart supervisord.service

Service is running on port 9001 on your firewall.

http://{server-ip}:9001

monitor-and-control-os-aws

and it is working. This concludes the installation and working of AWS Supervisor for monitoring the OS processes.
