Short Description
Elastalert as a docker container
Full Description

peopleperhour/elastalert

Docker image for the elasticalert by YELP with Alpine base image

More information regarding how to write rules http://elastalert.readthedocs.org/en/latest/recipes/writing_filters.html
and some example rules https://github.com/Yelp/elastalert/tree/master/example_rules

This container will check if there is data inside the /opt/rules directory and if not then it will download the rules from s3 bucket.

The name of the bucket as well as the credentials to access the bucket (IAM user) are passed as env vars (see bellow Environment Variables)

The container is based on the https://hub.docker.com/r/ivankrizsan/elastalert/ docker container with addition of s3 download rules.

Build

make

Local Testing

You have to first build the container with make

docker run --rm -it -v $(PWD)/:/opt/rules  \
        -e ELASTICSEARCH_HOST=192.168.66.6 \
        peopleperhour/elastalert bash;

$ mv /opt/config/config.yaml /opt/config/config.tpl.yaml
$ envsubst < /opt/config/config.tpl.yaml > /opt/config/config.yaml

You can now run the elastalert-test-rule to validate your rules

bash-4.3# elastalert-test-rule --help
usage: elastalert-test-rule [-h] [--schema-only] [--days DAYS]
                            [--data FILENAME] [--alert] [--save-json FILENAME]
                            [--count-only] [--config CONFIG]
                            rule
