cdist-type__prometheus_alertmanager - Man Page

install Alertmanager

Description

Install and configure Prometheus Alertmanager (https://prometheus.io/docs/alerting/alertmanager/).

Note that due to significant differences between Prometheus 1.x and 2.x, only 2.x is supported. It is your responsibility to make sure that your package manager installs 2.x. (On Devuan Ascii, the parameter --install-from-backports helps.)

Required Parameters

config

Alertmanager configuration file. It will be saved as /etc/alertmanager/alertmanager.yml on the target.

Optional Parameters

storage-path

Where to put data. Default: /data/alertmanager. (Directory will be created if needed.)

retention-days

How long to retain data. Default: 90 days.

Boolean Parameters

install-from-backports

Valid on Devuan only. Will enable the backports apt source and install the package from there. Useful for getting a newer version.

Examples

__prometheus_alertmanager \
    --install-from-backports \
    --config "$__manifest/files/alertmanager.yml" \
    --storage-path /data/alertmanager
