Readme for Buster-0.1.0

Buster

Build Status

Utility for periodically hitting URLs. The intended use case is forcing caches to be busted.

Building

Run make. Use a recent version of GHC. Requires cabal-dev.

Usage

buster config.yml

The program will log to stdout. If you want to reload the config without stopping the program, send it a HUP signal:

kill -HUP pid-of-buster

Configuration

Take a look in the example directory. Buster is configured with a yaml file:

verbose: true
monitor: false
log_file: /var/log/buster.log
urls:
- url: http://www.example.com
  interval: 5
  method: GET
- url: http://www.example.net
  interval: 2
  method: GET

Interval is measured in seconds. Monitor will begin auto-loading your config. If you have a process running and you decide you want the config monitored, send a HUP to the process and from then on it will monitor the file. If no log_file config is specified, it will log to stdout.
