Description

Monitor is a cookbook for monitoring services, using Sensu, a monitoring framework. The default recipe installs & configures the Sensu client (monitoring agent), as well as common service check dependencies. The master recipe installs & configures the Sensu server, API, Uchiwa (dashboard), & their dependencies (eg. RabbitMQ & Redis). The remaining recipes are intended to put monitoring checks in place in order to monitor specific services (eg. recipe[monitor::redis]).

THIS COOKBOOK SERVES AS AN EXAMPLE!!!

There are many ways to deploy/use Sensu and its dependencies, this "wrapper" cookbook is opinionated, you may not agree with its approach and choices. If this cookbook can serve as the base for your monitoring cookbook, fork it :-)

Requirements
