The command

Scylla-Monitoring is container-based, the simplest way to configure and start the monitoring is with the command.

The script is a small utility that sets the dashboards and starts the containers with the appropriate configuration.

General Options

-h Help, Print the help, and exit.

–version print the current Scylla-Monitoring stack version, and exit.

-l local. Use the host network. This is important when one of the containers need access to an application that runs on the host. For example, when Scylla-Manager runs on the localhost next to the monitoring. Because the monitoring applications run inside containers by default, their local IP address ( is the container local IP address. You cannot use port mapping when using the -l flag

-A bind-to-ip-address Bind the listening-address to an explicit IP address.

-D encapsulate docker param Allows passing additional parameters to all the docker containers.


-m alertmanager-port Override the default Alertmanager port. This is done using port mapping. Note that the port mapping does not work when using the host network.

-r alert-manager-config By default, the Alertmanager takes its configuration from rule_config.yml in the prometheus directory. The -r override it to another file.prometheus

-C alertmanager-commands Allows adding an arbitrary command line to the alertmanager container starting command.
