The Sensu monitoring event pipeline

Oct 1, 2018

Increasingly complex systems make availability and performance monitoring more difficult than ever before, especially for container-based, multi-cloud, and hybrid-cloud infrastructures.

Get complete visibility into every system, in every department.

This whitepaper will identify the underlying problems with most popular approaches to monitoring and outline a solution that is both seamless to implement and broadly scalable.

  • The problem: monitoring as an afterthought: Why do we repeat this cycle, and how do we escape it?
  • What is a monitoring event pipeline? Sensu consumes monitoring events and provides configurable primitives like event filters, event payload mutators, event handlers, and more for automating your monitoring workflow.
  • The Sensu agent – a powerful event producer: The Sensu agent complements the Sensu event pipeline by reducing operational complexity in event production.
