redis from source #340
Right now this cookbook uses a redis recipe which builds redis from source. Why is that?
Every modern linux distribution like ubuntu, centos contains a redis package. Using the default package would allow to use the security patches of the distribution and reduce the install complexity.
This was already posted here but belongs to sensu-chef more than to chef-monitor...
@runningman84 Redis from source is for consistency and it ensures a recent version installed that works with Sensu and the Redis configuration can be successfully managed by the cookbook (new options etc). We can certainly have another pass at it and see if things have changed.
