Applications are complex systems. Their many moving parts, component and dependency services, may span any number of infrastructure technologies and platforms, from bare metal to serverless. As the number of services increases, teams responsible for them will naturally develop their own preferences, such as how they instrument their code or how and when they receive alerts.
Sean will demonstrate how Sensu 2.0 is designed to collect monitoring and telemetry data from these heterogeneous environments and store them in InfluxDB. Sensu 2.0 is the next release of the open source monitoring framework, rewritten in Go, with new capabilities and reduced operational overhead. Using Sensu alongside InfluxDB, Sean will go over various patterns of data collection, including scraping Prometheus metrics, and show how Sensu enables self-service data collection for service owners.
