Build Status


To build bosun and scollector, clone to $GOPATH/src/

$ go get

bosun and scollector are found under the cmd directory. Run go build in the corresponding directories to build each project.



  • npm install typescript -g to be able to compile the ts files to js files.
  • go get to embed the static files. Run go generate in cmd/bosun when new static assets (like JS and CSS files) are added or changed.

The script will automatically build and run bosun in a loop. It will update itself when go/js/ts files change, and it runs in read-only mode, not sending any alerts.

$ cd cmd/bosun
$ ./

Go Version: * We generally upgrade to the latest version Go within a day or two. So consider the correct version of Go always to be the latest stable release.

Miniprofiler: * Bosun includes miniprofiler in the web UI which can help with debugging. The key combination ALT-P will show miniprofiler. This allows you to see timings, as well as the raw queries sent to TSDBs.
