Submitted by Robert George (@robert) on Mar 27, 2014

Section: Full talk Technical level: Intermediate Status: Rejected


To introduce alternatives to more widely used monitoring servers like nagios and ganglia.
To demonstrate setting up a monitoring and notification routing setup with minimum effort.


I will be broadly talking about:


  • Installation
  • Understanding configuration files
  • How to collect metrics using sensu and integration with graphite


  • Installation
  • Integrating with Sensu
  • Understanding the notification rules
  • Defining contacts, entities and notification rules
  • Setting up notification gateways


Beginner knowledge of ruby gems and json will be helpful.
