Sensu automatically adds and removes computes instances to and from monitoring, effortlessly handling the ephemeral nature of cloud computing without generating false alarms related to auto-scaling and other provisioning events.
Sensu eliminates the need to migrate host and host group definitions – simply deploy the Sensu Agent on your hosts and Sensu will automatically discover when new hosts come online and automatically deregister them when they are terminated. The ability to automatically convert service definitions to Sensu check definitions further streamlines the migration process.
With Sensu Enterprise, it's easy to reuse existing Nagios plugins to collect performance and other telemetry data and store it in modern solutions like InfluxDB, ElasticSearch, or Splunk. Free your metrics from the confines of Nagios!
