Running Hyperglance Behind a Proxy

To run Hyperglance behind a proxy please follow these steps:



1) Open for editing: /var/lib/data/hyperglance/config.env

2) Configure the proxy host and the proxy port to point to your proxy:

PROXY_HOST=123.0.1.1

PROXY_PORT=3120

3) [Optionally] If your proxy requires a username and password you can set the username and password:

PROXY_USER=myuser

PROXY_PASSWORD=yourpassword

4) When running in AWS we must explicitly exclude the AWS metadata service which runs on the link-local IP 169.254.169.254 from being proxied:

NON_PROXY_HOSTS=localhost|127.*|[::1]|169.254.169.254

5) Save the file

6) Restart services:

sudo docker-compose -f /etc/docker-compose.yml up -d

Wait a few minutes for Hyperglance start up and begin collecting data.

If it is not working as expected then checking the logs may indicate any configuration errors or connectivity issues.
