Initial Release

System Alerting and Monitoring (SAM)

System Alerting and Monitoring or SAM is an easy-to-use cluster monitoring solution for InterSystems IRIS® data platform version 2020.1 and later. SAM leverages the open-source technologies Prometheus and Grafana, augmenting their features with enterprise resiliency to provides a cohesive view of your application infrastructure.

You can deploy SAM by running one docker-compose command. The docker-compose.yml file defines all the needed containers and components, making SAM easy to set up.

For the complete documentation, visit the System Alerting and Monitoring guide.

PREPARE TO PULL CONTAINERS

There are 3 requirements for a successful automated run of SAM:

  1. Have Docker Compose v1.25+ installed on the Docker Engine v19.3+. Depending on your platform:
    • On Linux, you must install Docker Compose, as well as the Docker Engine. For instructions, visit Docker Compose install
    • On desktops, Docker Compose is included with Docker Desktop, so by installing it you have all the necessary components. Head over to the respective platform link if you need to install it:
  2. Have access to the InterSystems SAM container in a container registry.
    You can download InterSystems SAM Community Edition container from
  3. Have access to Docker Hub (https://hub.docker.com/). If you do not have an account, you should create one as the composition will be pulling other containers.

CLONE or DOWNLOAD the TARBALL

Either git-clone this repository or download the tarball + uncompress & untar it, as shown below

  • please make sure to include the p switch below as to maintain the correct file privileges
    $ tar zpxvf sam-<version>.tar.gz

RUN THE DOCKER-COMPOSE BUNDLE

To run SAM you just need to issue a docker-compose command. Simpler yet, use the wrapper start.sh and stop.sh scritps we provide for your convenience. Type the following at the prompt:

$ cd sam-<version>
$ ./start.sh

The first time you run SAM, Docker takes several seconds (depending on your network) to pull the various containers. When the command is finished (and on subsequent runs), you should see the following lines confirming that SAM is up and running:

Creating sam_iris_1 ... done  
Creating sam_prometheus_1 ... done  
Creating sam_grafana_1    ... done   
Creating sam_alertmanager_1 ... done  
Creating sam_nginx_1      ... done  

You can verify that all four containers are running by via docker ps, such as:

$ docker ps
