Install HertzBeat via Docker

Recommend to use docker deploy Apache HertzBeat (incubating)

  1. Download and install the Docker environment
    Docker tools download refer to Docker official document。 After the installation you can check if the Docker version normally output at the terminal.

    $ docker -v
    Docker version 20.10.12, build e91ed57
  2. pull HertzBeat Docker mirror
    you can look up the mirror version TAG in dockerhub mirror repository
    or in quay.io mirror repository

    $ docker pull apache/hertzbeat   
    $ docker pull apache/hertzbeat-collector

    or

    $ docker pull quay.io/tancloud/hertzbeat
    $ docker pull quay.io/tancloud/hertzbeat-collector
  3. Mounted HertzBeat configuration file (optional)
    Mounted and config application.yml in the host directory, eg:$(pwd)/application.yml
    ```-v $(pwd)/application.yml:/opt/hertzbeat/config/application.yml```` Download from github/script/application.yml
    You can modify the configuration yml file according to your needs.

    • If you need to use email to send alarms, you need to replace the email server parameters spring.mail in application.yml
    • Recommended If you need to use an external Mysql database to replace the built-in H2 database, you need to replace the spring.datasource parameter in application.yml For specific steps, see Using Mysql to replace H2 database
    • Recommended If you need to use the time series database victoria-metrics to store metric data, you need to replace the warehouse.store.victoria-metrics parameter in application.yml for specific steps, see Using victoria-metrics to store metrics data
  4. Mounted the account file(optional)
    HertzBeat default built-in three user accounts, respectively admin/hertzbeat tom/hertzbeat guest/hertzbeat
    If you need update account or password, configure sureness.yml. Ignore this step without this demand.
    Download and config sureness.yml in the host directory,eg:$(pwd)/sureness.yml
    Download from github/script/sureness.yml
    For detail steps, please refer to Configure Account Password

  5. Start the HertzBeat Docker container

$ docker run -d -p 1157:1157 -p 1158:1158 \
-e LANG=en_US.UTF-8 \
-e TZ=Asia/Shanghai \
-v $(pwd)/data:/opt/hertzbeat/data \
-v $(pwd)/logs:/opt/hertzbeat/logs \
-v $(pwd)/application.yml:/opt/hertzbeat/config/application.yml \
-v $(pwd)/sureness.yml:/opt/hertzbeat/config/sureness.yml \
--name hertzbeat apache/hertzbeat

This command starts a running HertzBeat Docker container with mapping port 1157-1158. If existing processes on the host use the port, please modify host mapped port.

  • docker run -d : Run a container in the background via Docker
  • -p 1157:1157 -p 1158:1158 : Mapping container ports to the host, 1157 is web-ui port, 1158 is cluster port.
  • -e LANG=en_US.UTF-8 : Set the system language
  • -e TZ=Asia/Shanghai : Set the system timezone
  • -v $(pwd)/data:/opt/hertzbeat/data : (optional, data persistence) Important⚠️ Mount the H2 database file to the local host, to ensure that the data is not lost due creating or deleting container.
  • -v $(pwd)/logs:/opt/hertzbeat/logs : (optional, if you don't have a need, just delete it) Mount the log file to the local host, to ensure the log will not be lost due creating or deleting container.
  • -v $(pwd)/application.yml:/opt/hertzbeat/config/application.yml : (optional, if you don't have a need, just delete it) Mount the local configuration file into the container which has been modified in the previous step, namely using the local configuration file to cover container configuration file.
  • -v $(pwd)/sureness.yml:/opt/hertzbeat/config/sureness.yml : (optional, if you don't have a need, just delete it) Mount account configuration file modified in the previous step into the container. Delete this command parameters if no needs.
  • --name hertzbeat : Naming container name hertzbeat
  • apache/hertzbeat : Use the pulled latest HertzBeat official application mirror to start the container. Use quay.io/tancloud/hertzbeat instead if you pull quay.io docker image.
  1. Begin to explore HertzBeat

    Access http://ip:1157/ using browser. You can explore HertzBeat with default account admin/hertzbeat now!

  2. Deploy collector cluster (Optional)

$ docker run -d \
-e IDENTITY=custom-collector-name \
-e MODE=public \
-e MANAGER_HOST=127.0.0.1 \
-e MANAGER_PORT=1158 \
--name hertzbeat-collector apache/hertzbeat-collector

This command starts a running HertzBeat-Collector container.

  • docker run -d : Run a container in the background via Docker
  • -e IDENTITY=custom-collector-name : (optional) Set the collector unique identity name. Attention the clusters collector name must unique.
  • -e MODE=public : set the running mode(public or private), public cluster or private cloud-edge.
  • -e MANAGER_HOST=127.0.0.1 : Important⚠️ Set the main hertzbeat server ip.
  • -e MANAGER_PORT=1158 : (optional) Set the main hertzbeat server port, default 1158.
  • -v $(pwd)/logs:/opt/hertzbeat-collector/logs : (optional) Mount the log file to the local host, to ensure the log will not be lost due creating or deleting container.
  • --name hertzbeat-collector : Naming container name hertzbeat-collector
  • apache/hertzbeat-collector : Use the pulled latest HertzBeat-Collector official application mirror to start the container. Use quay.io/tancloud/hertzbeat-collector instead if you pull quay.io docker image.
  1. Access http://localhost:1157 and you will see the registered new collector in dashboard.

FAQ

The most common problem is network problems, please check in advance

  1. MYSQL, TDENGINE, IoTDB and HertzBeat are deployed on the same host by Docker,HertzBeat use localhost or 127.0.0.1 connect to the database but fail
    The problems lies in Docker container failed to visit and connect localhost port. Because the docker default network mode is Bridge mode which can't access local machine through localhost.

    Solution A:Configure application.yml. Change database connection address from localhost to external IP of the host machine.
    Solution B:Use the Host network mode to start Docker, namely making Docker container and hosting share network. docker run -d --network host .....

  2. According to the process deploy,visit http://ip:1157/ no interface
    Please refer to the following points to troubleshoot issues:

    1:If you switch to dependency service MYSQL database,check whether the database is created and started successfully. 2:Check whether dependent services, IP account and password configuration is correct in HertzBeat's configuration file application.yml. 3:docker logs hertzbeat Check whether the container log has errors. If you haven't solved the issue, report it to the communication group or community.

  3. Historical monitoring charts have been missing data for a long time

    1:Check whether you configure victoria-metrics or Tdengine or IoTDB. No configuration means no historical chart data. 2: Check whether IP account and password configuration is correct in HertzBeat's configuration file application.yml.

  4. If the history chart on the monitoring page is not displayed,popup [please configure time series database]

    As shown in the popup window,the premise of history chart display is that you need install and configure hertzbeat's dependency service database. Installation and initialization this database, please refer to Using victoria-metrics to store metrics data

  5. The time series database is installed and configured, but the page still displays a pop-up [Unable to provide historical chart data, please configure dependent time series database]

    Please check if the configuration parameters are correct Is time-series database enable set to true Note⚠️If both hertzbeat and time-series database are started under the same host for docker containers, 127.0.0.1 cannot be used for communication between containers by default, and the host IP is changed You can check the startup logs according to the logs directory
