Sensu can be a simple infrastructure, application, and service monitoring solution—or an operations enablement platform. Getting started is the easy part. Expanding to additional use cases is where Sensu truly sets itself apart from the competition.
A single monitoring platform with many applications.
Sensu is the leading Nagios alternative because it frees you from the fragility of object definition dependencies without forcing you to give up trusty Nagios plugins or custom monitoring scripts.
Sensu was designed from the ground up to solve problems related to ephemeral compute. Collect events and metrics, and get fully automated discovery and deregistration across AWS, GCP, Azure, OpenStack, and VMware.
Sensu is designed to effortlessly handle the ephemeral and challenging nature of container orchestration. Collect events, metrics, and labels from Kubernetes, RedHat OpenShift, Docker, Mesos, and Cloud Foundry.
Most Sensu users start with a simple problem: How do I reproduce our on-premises infrastructure monitoring capabilities in the cloud without starting over? Or, how do I reduce the number of false-positive infrastructure monitoring alerts I’m getting that are related to cloud/container provisioning events such as auto-scaling?
But all that cloud and container infrastructure also has applications and services running on it, and they need monitoring too. Wouldn’t it be handy if you could collect and analyze availability and performance data for your applications and microservices using the same pipeline? Sensu makes it easy to onboard new teams, and spread to new environments.
The Sensu monitoring event pipeline was designed to empower users to solve problems without starting over. Generating and collecting availability and performance data has been a solved problem for a long time, why should you reinvent those wheels when all you really need is a way to orchestrate and aggregate that collection across a modern ephemeral infrastructure?
From the moment you configure your first alert, Sensu becomes an incomparable and indispensable tool, solving real-world problems without reinventing wheels. Sensu is easy to use, share, and scale, and adds value every step of the way.
