NAME bolo2redis - Bolo Redis Subscriber SYNOPSIS bolo2redis -e tcp://host:port -H redis.my.domain -P 6379 bolo2redis -F bolo2redis -u nobody -g nogroup --pidfile /var/run/my.pid DESCRIPTION bolo is a lightweight monitoring system kernel that aggregates counter data and sample readings, maintains event and state information, and broadcasts its findings to all connected *bolo subscribers*. These subscribers can perform a wide variety of functions, from storing metric data in RRDs to sending notifications on state changes. bolo2redis is a subscriber that lists for KEY data and forwards it onto a Redis key-value store. OPTIONS -V, --version Print version and copyright information. -e, --endpoint *tcp://host:port* The bolo broadcast endpoint. Defaults to *tcp://127.0.0.1:2997*. Supports DNS resolution for both IPv4 and IPv6 endpoints. -H, --host *redis.fq.dn* The hostname or IP address of the Redis server to submit key/value data to. Defaults to *127.0.0.1*. -P, --port *6379* The TCP port that Redis is listening on. Defaults to *6379*, the standard Redis port. -F, --foreground By default, bolo2redis will fork into the background, detach its terminal and daemonize itself. This option inhibits that behavior, and also stops its from setting the effective UID / GID (see -u and -g). -p, --pidfile */path/to/pidfile* Specify where bolo2redis should write its PID to, for control by init scripts. Defaults to /var/run/bolo2redis.pid. Has no effect if -F is given. -u, --user *USERNAME* -g, --group *GROUP NAME* User and group to drop privileges to. By default, bolo2redis will run as root:root, which is probably not what you want. -v, --verbose Enable verbose mode, printing debugging information to standard error.
