A simple, malleable, and scalable framework for composing the monitoring system you need.
Sensu is offered in two flavors:
Sensu Core – this open source project
Sensu Enterprise – a full-featured commercial implementation, built on Sensu Core
Sensu is an open source monitoring framework. Key Features:
Height can be combined; provide a monitoring agent, an event handler and a document APIs
Designed for the cloud; Sensu’s modern architecture allows for monitoring large-scale dynamic infrastructures that can monitor thousands of globally distributed machines and services through complex public networks
Sensu 1.0.0 has been released, the new version has the following changes:
IMPORTANT : Sensu package is now available in Ruby 2.4.1. Upgrading from older versions of Sensu will need to reinstall any plugins or extend gem in a new Ruby environment.
IMPORTANT : Sensu packages now include sensu-plugin 2.0.0 , which disables its deprecated filter methods by default, ie occurrences. Sensu 1.0 includes built-in filters that provide the same functionality with several improvements. The built-in filters are “occurrences” And “check_dependencies” . To use the built-in filters, apply them to Sensu event handlers via their definition “filters” attribute, eg “filters”: [“occurrences”, “check_dependencies”]. These filters can now be used with Sensu event handlers that do not use the sensu-plugin library (or Ruby).
NEW : Added alias “incidents” for the Sensu API event endpoint, such as / incidents, / incidents /: client /: check
IMPROVEMENT : Improved Sensu client keepalive configuration validation, now including coverage for check low / high flap thresholds etc.
IMPROVEMENT : Improved Sensu client socket check result validation, now including coverage for check low / high flap thresholds etc.
IMPROVEMENT : The sensu-install tool now notifies users when it is unable to successfully install an extension, when the environment variable EMBEDDED_RUBY is set to false.
IMPROVEMENT : Added the Sensu RELEASE_INFO constant, containing information about the Sensu release, used by the API / info endpoint and Server registration.
BUGFIX : Sensu handler severities filtering now accounts for flapping events.
BUGFIX : Fixed Sensu Redis connection on error reconnect, no longer reusing the existing EventMachine connection handler.
