Configuration Options

Below is a full set of configuration options for the Sick Muse server. These options are configured on the command line via sickmuse --<name>=<value>.


Default: False

Turns the server into debug mode. In this mode the static resouces will use the non-compressed version and the Python code changes will auto reload. This setting is used for local development and should not be used in production.


Default: 8282

The port on which the server runs.


Default: "" (Empty String)

The prefix argument can be used to run the server on under a url prefix. For instance if you wanted to run the server under sickmuse you could start the server with:

sickmuse --prefix=sickmuse

and then proxy the server with Nginx

upstream sickmuse {

server {
    listen 80;

    location /sickmuse/ {
        proxy_set_header X-Real-IP $remote_addr;
        proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-For $proxy_add_x_forwarded_for;
        proxy_set_header Host $http_host;
        proxy_redirect off;
        proxy_buffering on;
        proxy_intercept_errors on;
        proxy_pass http://sickmuse;

You could then see the server running at


Default: /var/lib/collectd/rrd/

This is the directory where the server parses the round robin database files. It expects this directory to have the structure created by Collectd where the sub-directories are organized /<host-name>/<plugin-name>/<instance>.rrd.
