HOWTO test drive CrowdSec


We’re currently using several EC2 instances running nginx and fail2ban in production behind an ALB.

Is there a way to test drive CrowdSec to get a feel for how it would classify the traffic we get without actually blocking anything? e.g. somehow running the nginx logs (or just the external IPs) through CrowdSec on another box.

Many Thanks


UPDATE: From reading the documentation it looks like installing CrowdSec alongside our nginx servers without any bouncers should provide what I’m looking for.

Hello @Andrew,

Yes by running crowdsec without any bouncer you will be able to test it.
You can also test CrowdSec by running it directly on a complete log file with the Replay mode (cf. Replay Mode | CrowdSec).
