Hi,

relayor v22.0.0-rc is released.

relayor is an ansible role that helps you with running tor relays with minimal effort (automate everything).

Changes since relayor v21.2.0-rc:

  * MetricsPort support improvements:
    * generate nginx reverse server config for remote prometheus scraping on the relay (we do not install nginx)
    * generate htpasswd file for HTTP basic auth of MetricsPort on the relay
  * debian/ubuntu: support new alpha repos (branch name is no longer included in the repo name).
  * FreeBSD 12.3 is supported

kind regards,
nusenu

Hi,

a relayor user asking about relay monitoring best practices
motivated me to add blackbox_exporter scrape config support to
relayor.
This feature allows tor relay operators to monitor the reachability
of all their relays' OrPort/DirPorts on IPv4 and IPv6.

The next stable relayor release will come with a guide
on how to use all the new prometheus integrations in relayor.

The relayor GitHub repo has now Discussions enabled.

Changes since relayor v22.0.0-rc:

* add support for prometheus blackbox_exporter scrape configuration generation
  * this feature generates a prometheus scrape config for blackbox_exporter
  to monitor the reachability of all your ORPorts/DirPorts on IPv4 and IPv6
  * this feature does not depend on MetricsPort support and can be used
on all tor relays even those that do not support MetricsPort

* prometheus MetricsPort support security improvements:
  * randomize metrics_path
  * randomize HTTP basic auth username
    
kind regards,
nusenu
