Monitoring With Sensu 2.0
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 monitor these ever changing heterogeneous environments. Sensu 2.0 is the next release of the open source monitoring framework, rewritten in Go, with new capabilities and reduced operational overhead. Sean will go over various patterns of data collection, including scraping Prometheus metrics, and show how Sensu enables self-service monitoring and alerting for service owners.
Outline/Structure of the Talk
Sean will begin by describing the problems technologists are faced with in today's ever changing computing environments. He will then explain what Sensu is (the open source monitoring tool) and how it approaches monitoring heterogeneous and dynamic infrastructure. Sean will give a high level technical overview of Sensu 2.0 and explain what makes it unique. Sean will demonstrate various patterns of data collection, including scraping Prometheus metrics, and show how Sensu enables self-service monitoring and alerting for service owners.
Attendees will learn about Sensu 2.0 (the open source monitoring tool), its approach to monitoring, its design, and the many ways it can be used to collect data from infrastructure and applications. Attendees will leave with ideas of how Sensu can be used to solve their monitoring problems.
