Remark: the riemann config is the file riemann.config. It contains alert rules.

Riemann-Dash is a javascript, websockets-powered dashboard for Riemann.

Get started

    $ gem install riemann-dash
    $ riemann-dash

Then open http://localhost:4567 in a browser. Riemann-dash will connect to the local host (relative to your browser) by default, and show you a small manual. Change the IP address in the top right field to point to your Riemann server's websocket port.


Riemann-dash takes an optional config file, which you can specify as the first command-line argument. If none is given, it looks for a file in the local directory: config.rb. That file can override any configuration options on the Dash class, and hence, all Sinatra configuration. You'll find a few usage examples in "example/config.rb".

set :port, 6000      # HTTP server on port 6000
set :bind, "" # Bind to a different interface
config[:ws_config] = 'custom/config.json' # Specify custom workspace config

Putting in production

If you expect more than a couple of simultaneous users, you should consider running Riemann-dash in a proper application server. The easiest way is to install thin or puma. Riemann-dash will automatically use one of them if they are present. You'll need the C/C++ compiler, as well as the ruby and openssl libraries and headers installed.

    $ gem install riemann-dash thin
    $ riemann-dash

Riemann-dash can also run in a web server supporting the Rack interface. An example rackup app is found in "example/".


$ git clone git://
$ cd riemann-dash
$ bundle
