A pipeline is a group of automated procedures or tools that developers use to create and release code into a live environment. Generally speaking, a pipeline consists of three primary parts:

Build automation/continuous integration: Test automation Deploy automation

It generally contains a set of tools that are divided into the following parts : Source Control Build tools Containerization Configuration Management Monitoring


How to get the name of EC2 from its instance-id using AWS Lambda

4.avif If you are an AWS user, you might have encountered a situation where you have to get the name of an EC2 instance from its instance ID. This can be a daunting task if you are new to AWS. Fortunately, with the help of AWS Lambda, it is now possible to automate this task and get the instance name in a few simple steps. In this blog, we will guide you through retrieving the name of an EC2 instance from its instance ID using AWS Lambda. So, let’s get started!

def ec2_name(instanceId): ec2r = boto3.resource('ec2') running_instances = ec2r.instances.filter( Filters=[{'Name': 'instance-state-name', 'Values': ['running']}, {'Name': 'instance-id', 'Values': [instanceId]}]) for instance in running_instances: for tag in instance.tags: if 'Name' in tag['Key']: name = tag['Value'] print(name) def lambda_handler(event, context): instanceIds = ["i-0d397eb19ba20063b", "i-0077a88cef38d609e"] for i in instanceIds: name = ec2_name(i) print(name)


Note: It will return the name for only instances which are running.

Using Inotify for internal audit logs in windows and Linux

9.avif In the realm of monitoring cloud or on-premises applications and DevOps scripts, we frequently want functionalities such as receiving alerts of file creation, deletion, or modification throughout the file system with time stamps, permissions, and location. This feature is provided by the Linux kernel’s built-in function.

Inotify is a feature built-in to the Linux kernel, which also has analogs in most other operating systems: In Windows, filesystem changes are exposed via the Win32 Directory Change Notifications API or the .NET FileSystemWatcher() API. Such mechanisms allow tools to be aware of changes made to directories and/or files they’re interested in. more

Enable Alerts from AWS CloudWatch through Mail.

13.avifThis blog will show you how to receive alerts from AWS CloudWatch for any AWS service, such as EC2, through email and receive notifications for the same service.

I want to use it to monitor the performance of my AWS EC2 machine. You must first find a way to keep track of your workload so that you can make adjustments in order to cut costs. If the CPU use of your EC2 instance exceeds the threshold, alert management will notify you that Your EC2 instance CPU utilization is beyond the threshold and needed some action to be performed.

So let’s start our journey,*more

Web Hosting via IPFS and Pinata

17.avif In this blog, we will be discussing the web hosting technique via IPFS. So first let’s understand what IPFS mean.

IPFS stands for Interplanetary File system. It is a peer-to-peer network. It’s purpose is to store and provide access to files, websites, data, and applications. It allows users to host and receive content in a decentralized manner via peer-to-peer file sharing. This means that user-operators hold a portion of the overall data which creates a strong system of file storage and sharing. Now let’s understand the working of IPFS :

Usually, when we put a link or any URL in the browser, we technically ask the other computer for the page that we requested. But that’s not the only way we can retrieve the information, rather, if there is any replica of that page on the IPFS that we could use. more
