An easy to use Status Page for your websites and applications. Statping will automatically fetch the application and render a beautiful status page with tons of features for you to build an even better status page. This Status Page generator allows you to use MySQL, Postgres, or SQLite on multiple operating systems.
Whether you're a Docker fan-boy or a AWS EC2 master, Statping gives you multiple options to simply get running. Our Amazon AMI image is only 8Gb and will automatically update to the most stable version of Statping.
Running on an EC2 server might be the most cost effective way to host your own Statping Status Page. The server runs on the smallest EC2 instance (t2.nano) AWS has to offer, which only costs around $4.60 USD a month for your dedicated Status Page.
Want to run it on your own Docker server? Awesome! Statping has multiple docker-compose.yml files to work with. Statping can automatically create a SSL Certification for your status page.
Statping includes email notification via SMTP and Slack integration using Incoming Webhook. Insert the webhook URL into the Settings page in Statping and enable the Slack integration. Anytime a service fails, you're channel that you specified on Slack will receive a message.
docker run -it -p 8080:8080 statping/statping
There are multiple ways to startup a Statping server. You want to make sure Statping is on it's own instance that is not on the same server as the applications you wish to monitor. It doesn't look good when your Status Page goes down, I recommend a small EC2 instance so you can set it, and forget it.
In this folder there is a standard docker-compose file that include nginx, postgres, and Statping.
docker-compose up -d
You can automatically start a Statping server with automatic SSL encryption using this docker-compose file. First point your domain's DNS to the Statping server, and then run this docker-compose command with DOMAIN and EMAIL. Email is for letsencrypt services.
LETSENCRYPT_HOST=mydomain.com \ LETSENCRYPT_EMAILfirstname.lastname@example.org \ docker-compose -f docker-compose-ssl.yml up -d
Once your instance has started, it will take a moment to get your SSL certificate. Make sure you have a A or CNAME record on your domain that points to the IP/DNS of your server running Statping.
Statping includes a Prometheus Exporter so you can have even more monitoring power with your services. The Prometheus exporter can be seen on
/metrics, simply create another exporter in your prometheus config. Use your Statping API Secret for the Authorization Bearer header, the
/metrics URL is dedicated for Prometheus and requires the correct API Secret has
scrape_configs: - job_name: 'statping' bearer_token: 'MY API SECRET HERE' static_configs: - targets: ['statping:8080']
Running Statping on the smallest EC2 server is very quick using the AWS AMI Image. Checkout the AWS Wiki to see a step by step guide on how to get your EC2 Statping service online.
Create the AWS Security Groups with the commands below, Statping will expose port 80 and 443.
aws ec2 create-security-group --group-name StatpingPublicHTTP \ --description "Statping HTTP Server on port 80 and 443" # will response back a Group ID. Copy ID and use it for --group-id below. aws ec2 authorize-security-group-ingress \ --group-id sg-7e8b830f --protocol tcp \ --port 80 --cidr 0.0.0.0/0 aws ec2 authorize-security-group-ingress \ --group-id sg-7e8b830f --protocol tcp \ --port 443 --cidr 0.0.0.0/0
aws ec2 run-instances \ --image-id ami-7be8a103 \ --count 1 --instance-type t2.nano \ --key-name MYKEYHERE \ --security-group-ids sg-7e8b830f
The AWS-CLI command below will automatically create an EC2 server and create an SSL certificate from Lets Encrypt, for free.
wget https://raw.githubusercontent.com/statping/statping/master/servers/ec2-ssl.sh # Edit ec2-ssl.sh and insert your domain you want to use, then run command below. # Use the Security Group ID that you used above for --security-group-ids aws ec2 run-instances \ --user-data file://ec2-ssl.sh \ --image-id ami-7be8a103 \ --count 1 --instance-type t2.nano \ --key-name MYKEYHERE \ --security-group-ids sg-7e8b830f
Statping accepts Push Requests to the
dev branch! Feel free to add your own features and notifiers. You probably want to checkout the Notifier Wiki to get a better understanding on how to create your own notification methods for failing/successful services. Testing on Statping will test each function on MySQL, Postgres, and SQLite. I recommend running MySQL and Postgres Docker containers for testing. You can find multiple docker-compose files in the dev directory.
