Meerkat reads configuration from a text file in TOML format. By default meerkat reads from the path
/etc/meerkat.toml. An alternative file may be specified with the
-config flag. For example:
meerkat -config /tmp/something/meerkat.toml
The following configuration options are available:
HTTPAddr: The address, in host:port format, to serve meerkat from. For example
0.0.0.0:6969. The default is “:8080” i.e. all IPv4, IPv6 addresses port 8080.
IcingaURL: A URL pointing to an instance of Icinga serving the HTTP API. Meerkat can connect to Icinga to create dashboard elements from Icinga objects. This is usually a HTTPS URL with port 5665. For example
https://icinga.example.com:5665. The default is using the loopback address and the default Icinga port
IcingaPassword: The username and password with which to authenticate to Icinga. The default value for both is
IcingaInsecureTLS: If set to true, verification of the TLS certificates served by the Icinga API is skipped. This is often required when Icinga is configured with self-signed certificates. The default is false.
A typical installation is performed on the same host as Icinga. Self-signed certificates are generally used, and the password will not be
meerkat. So at
IcingaPassword = "somethingsecret123456" IcingaInsecureTLS = true
