Swarm Stack local-proxy-prom-Icinga2

Before using these make sure you had clone the repository by:

git submodule update --init --recursive

That example of local deployment is nearly the same to the previews one except we will replace ELK by Icinga2 + plugin logs! | Now let’s go..

(*) All Open Sources

Services Software
GUI Control Portainer
Central Monitoring Promotheus + Grafana
Central Logging Icinga2
Layer 7 Proxy Traefik
Storage Local File System
Networking Docker Swarm Overlay
Orchestration Docker Swarm
Runtime Docker CE
Machine and OS Docker Machine + VirtualBox

You have 2 way to deploy it:

- The fast way by launch the ansible workbook, just type:

    ansible-playbook -i ansible/swarm/local-inventory ansible/swarm/local-proxy-prom-icinga2.yml
    # NOTE: that will take around 5 minutes

- Or the long way but where you can learn every step ...

Learn every step to deploy the local swarm

1/ Create the Machine:

./utils2devops/bin/docker-machine-cluster.sh -c 5
You can go to see the doc of this tools here Create your local cluster of docker-machine
Here we will create a swarm with 3 machines

2/ Enable monitoring (optional):

./utils2devops/bin/enable-monitoring.sh -p ./utils2devops/docker/ -n 5

3/ Create the Docker Swarm:

./utils2devops/bin/swarm.sh -c -m 3 -w 2
You can go to see the doc of this tools here Add local nodes in docker-machine
Here we will create a swarm with 3 manager and 2 worker

4/ To launch docker command in the Master with ssh it:

eval "$(docker-machine env node-1)"

5/ Deploy Traefik:

export TRAEFIK_HOST=traefik.yourdomain
default value: traefik.example.com
export TRAEFIK_PUBLIC_TAG=my-traefik-public
default value: traefik-public
docker stack deploy -c ./utils2devops/docker/local-proxy-prom-icinga2/traefik.yml traefik

After this step we will have a proxy Dashboard at:


7/ Deploy Ops Stacks Graphics UI (optional):

export PORTAINER_HOST=portainer.yourdomain
default value: portainer.example.com
docker stack deploy -c ./utils2devops/docker/local-with-prom-elk/portainer.yml portainer

After these steps we will have:

Portainer at:
and so many other... have a look here https://www.portainer.io/overview/

8/ Deploy Ops Stacks:

export ADMIN_USER=admin
default value: admin
export ADMIN_PASSWORD=adminadmin
default value: adminadmin
export HASHED_PASSWORD=$(openssl passwd -apr1 -salt pepper $ADMIN_PASSWORD)

You can check the contents with:


it will look like:


Create and export an environment variable DOMAIN, e.g.::

export DOMAIN=example.com

and make sure that the following sub-domains point to your Docker Swarm cluster IPs:


Note: You can also use a subdomain, like swarmprom.example.com. Just make sure that the subdomains point to (at least one of) your cluster IPs. Or set up a wildcard subdomain (*).

Set and export an environment variable with the tag used by Traefik public to filter services (by default, it’s traefik-public):

export TRAEFIK_PUBLIC_TAG=traefik-public

If you are using Slack and want to integrate it, set the following environment variables:

export SLACK_URL=https://hooks.slack.com/services/TOKEN
default value: https://hooks.slack.com/services/TOKEN
export SLACK_CHANNEL=utils2devops-tests
default value: general
export SLACK_USER=alertmanager
default value: alertmanager

Then we continue to deploy with swarmprom:

docker stack deploy -c ./utils2devops/docker/local-proxy-prom-icinga2/swarmprom.yml prom

After these steps we will have

Grafana login at:
Grafana Swarm nodes at:
Grafana Swarm Services at:
Promotheus Stat at:
Promotheus Query at::
Alert manager at:
Alert Dashboard at:

In promotheus try:

sum(irate(container_cpu_usage_seconds_total{image!=""}[1m])) without (cpu)
sum(rate(container_network_transmit_bytes_total{image!=""}[1m])) without (interface)
sum(rate(container_fs_reads_bytes_total{image!=""}[1m])) without (device)
sum(rate(container_fs_writes_bytes_total{image!=""}[1m])) without (device)

Then we finish to deploy with elk:

default value: admin
default value: admin
export ELASTICSEARCH_HASHED_PASSWORD=$(openssl passwd -apr1 -salt pepper $ELASTICSEARCH_PASSWORD)
export KIBANA_USER=admin
default value: admin
export KIBANA_PASSWORD=adminadmin
default value: admin
export KIBANA_HASHED_PASSWORD=$(openssl passwd -apr1 $KIBANA_PASSWORD)
docker stack deploy -c ./utils2devops/docker/local-proxy-prom-icinga2/elk.yml elk

After these steps we will have:

Elasticsearch at:
kibana at:
and much more have a look at https://github.com/stefanprodan/swarmprom

Note: | To use elasticsearch you will have to increase the max virtual memory or you will get: | WARN: max virtual memory areas vm.max_map_count [65530] is too low, increase to at least [262144] | It can be fixed by running on the node: | sysctl -w vm.max_map_count=262144 in terminal (Linux/Ubuntu). | Or permanently by create a file name 60-elasticsearch.conf and place it in /etc/sysctl.d/ with the following content: | vm.max_map_count=262144

Now it’s ready to deploy your apps and test them:

docker stack deploy my_company/my_services my_service

When you have finish to use it, Destroy it by:

./utils2devops/bin/docker-machine-cluster.sh -d 5
