Introduce sysadmins to fedmsg tools and config
fedmsg is a system that links together most of our webapps and services into a message mesh or net (often called a "bus"). It is built on top of the zeromq messaging library.
fedmsg has its own developer documentation that is a good place to check if this or other SOPs don’t provide enough information - http://fedmsg.rtfd.org
Generally, fedmsg-tail and fedmsg-logger are the two most commonly used tools for debugging and testing. To see if bus-connectivity exists between two machines, log onto each of them and run the following on the first:
$ echo testing from $(hostname) | fedmsg-logger
And run the following on the second:
$ fedmsg-tail --really-pretty
fedmsg configuration lives in
/etc/fedmsg.d/endpoints.py keeps the list of every possible fedmsg
endpoint. It acts as a global index that defines the bus.
See https://fedmsg.readthedocs.org/en/stable/configuration/ for a full glossary of configuration values.
