Sosk consists of several parts.
When you apply for a Sosk account we automatically create a private tenant just for you and your data. Your tenant is referred as your "zone" and has a unique ID. For example you may obtain the "zone51" if you are lucky enough.
Just use Sosk account creation form to apply for your private tenant. You just need to provide a valid mail address and a chosen password. Feel free to provide the optional informations as it allows us to better know our customers. However none of them are mandatory.
Right after your account creation you can use the login form to sign in. You will be directed to your tenant wgere demo data have been published. You can then see active probes and demonstration dashboards.
Sosk probes can be setup on several platforms.
Flash the Sosk ISO image to your SD card. No need to expand the filesystem or to change partition logic. Optionaly you may check the MD5/SHA1 checksum of the SD card right after flahsing to ensure all is correct.
In your management interface, go to "Zone settings" and switch the "Probe enrollment" setting to ON. It will allows probes to join your zone for the next 1 hour, 1 day or forever (bad idea !). Choose a private value for your PSK, or let Sosk generate one for you.
Plug in your USB stick, create a directory exactly named "sonar" at the root. Create a text file exactly named "config.yaml" in it, and put the following content in. Replace zone2 by your zone name (example: zone51) and the zone PSK by your PSK. Be very careful, every space, tab or dash is important. The hostname of the probe will be randomly generated, this is the recommended way.
--- probesetup::myhostname: RANDOM probesetup::myzone: zone2 probesetup::zonepsk: YOUR_ZONE_PSK_HERE probesetup::mastername: master.sonar.acipia.net
Just plug the Raspberry Pi to a DHCP-enabled network. It should be up within 2 minutes.
Now plug the USB stick we've setup previously. This step may take up to 5 minutes depending of the Internet available bandwidth. Your probe needs to download several packages then register unt your zone. During this time feel free to open the "event log" panel in your Management interface, and go take some coffee, you deserve it.
Your newly enrolled probe shoudl have appear in the "probes" panel in your Management interface, with a "in-sync" status. You can unplug the USB stick and keep it for further enrollments. Congratulations !
These models with less than 1Gb RAM are not powerful enough.
Just use dd (Linux & MacOS) or Win32DiskImager (Windows) to flash your SD card with the provided image. In cas you need further instructions you can refer to Raspberry Pi documentations.
Check the "event logs" pane and double-check you've entered the right PSK. You may also contact support..
The image contains just a Raspbian OS, which is a Debian-based Linux distribution customized for Raspberry Pi. Sosk version differs only by adding Puppet agent package and some bootstrap logic specific to Sosk usage.
Sosk image is just a Raspbian Jessie image with additional packages like Puppet. These packages are free software, the exact distribution terms for each program are described in the individual files in /usr/share/doc/*/copyright. You may contact us if you feel we forgot to provide the source code of modified opensource software. For more details see our FLOSS testimony.
