Getting Started

To get the prometheus enviroplus-exporter up and running I'm assuming you already have Prometheus and Grafana running somewhere. Note: I wouldn't recommend running Prometheus on a Raspberry Pi (using a local SD card) as this could drastically reduce the lifetime of the SD card as samples are written quite often to disk.

Prerequisites

To run the enviroplus-exporter you need to have the enviroplus-python library by Pimoroni installed:

One-line (Installs enviroplus-python library from GitHub)

curl -sSL https://get.pimoroni.com/enviroplus | bash

Note Raspbian Lite users may first need to install git: sudo apt install git

Installation

We're going to run the enviroplus-exporter as the user pi in the directory /usr/src/. Adjust this as you wish.

1.Clone the enviroplus-exporter repository

cd
git clone https://github.com/tijmenvandenbrink/enviroplus_exporter.git
sudo cp -r enviroplus_exporter /usr/src/
sudo chown -R pi:pi /usr/src/enviroplus_exporter

2.Install as a Systemd service

cd /usr/src/enviroplus_exporter
sudo cp contrib/enviroplus-exporter.service /etc/systemd/system/enviroplus-exporter.service
sudo chmod 644 /etc/systemd/system/enviroplus-exporter.service
sudo systemctl daemon-reload

3.Start the enviroplus-exporter service

sudo systemctl start enviroplus-exporter

4.Check the status of the service

sudo systemctl status enviroplus-exporter

If the service is running correctly, the output should resemble the following:

pi@raspberrypi:/usr/src/enviroplus_exporter $ sudo systemctl status enviroplus-exporter

5.Enable at boot time

sudo systemctl enable enviroplus-exporter

Usage

So now we've setup the Prometheus enviroplus-exporter we can start scraping this endpoint from our Prometheus server and get a nice dashboard using Grafana.

Prometheus

If you haven't setup Prometheus yet have a look at the installation guide here.

Below is a simple scraping config:

# Sample config for Prometheus.

global:
  scrape_interval:     15s # By default, scrape targets every 15 seconds.
  evaluation_interval: 15s # By default, scrape targets every 15 seconds.
  # scrape_timeout is set to the global default (10s).

  # Attach these labels to any time series or alerts when communicating with
  # external systems (federation, remote storage, Alertmanager).
  external_labels:
      monitor: 'external'

# Load and evaluate rules in this file every 'evaluation_interval' seconds.
rule_files:
  # - "first.rules"
  # - "second.rules"

# A scrape configuration containing exactly one endpoint to scrape:
# Here it's Prometheus itself.
scrape_configs:
  # The job name is added as a label `job=<job_name>` to any timeseries scraped from this config.
  - job_name: 'prometheus'

    # Override the global default and scrape targets from this job every 5 seconds.
    scrape_interval: 15s
    scrape_timeout: 15s

    # metrics_path defaults to '/metrics'
    # scheme defaults to 'http'.

    static_configs:
    - targets: ['localhost:9090']

  - job_name: node
    # If prometheus-node-exporter is installed, grab stats about the local
    # machine by default.
    static_configs:
    - targets: ['localhost:9100']

    # If environmentplus-exporter is installed, grab stats about the local
    # machine by default.
  - job_name: environment
    static_configs:
    - targets: ['localhost:8000']
      labels:
        group: 'environment'
        location: 'Amsterdam'
        
    - targets: ['newyork.example.com:8001']
      labels:
        group: 'environment'
        location: 'New York'

I added two labels to the targets group: environment and location: SomeLocation. The Grafana dashboard uses these labels to distinguish the various locations.

Grafana

I will publish a Grafana Dashboard shortly.
