Writing a Check Plugin
With the release of 0.11.1, Cabot can be extended through the use of check plugins. This allows the user to check additional data sources beyond the default ones.
Before getting started, follow the development introduction. Continue when you have set up
docker-compose and got cabot running locally on your own machine.
You can get inspiration from these two check plugins:
- ‘Network’ check plugin is an extremely simple plugin, with a very narrow feature set.
- ‘CloudWatch’ check plugin is a more advanced example, using more specific fields and advanced features like autocompletion.
- ‘SSLCert’ check plugin is a simple plugin to check SSL certificates, you can specify days before expiration.
