Overall Satisfaction with Sensu

Sensu is being used by our entire company for various monitoring purposes. With open-source plugins, we can do a lot more than the Nagios plugins that come shipped with it. We are using Sensu to track the health of our servers and of the definite processes the servers would be running.
  • Cloud agnostic monitoring.
  • Open source
  • Container monitoring at the highest level.
  • Monitoring plugins can be easily created.
  • Cannot be solely used for tracking metrics over time.
  • Not a very good UI.
  • Can easily understand and extend use-cases to under server capabilities.
  • Can use it to scale well.
  • Can help in efficient resource planning.
Have used New Relic and Sematext Cloud for APM and for tracking over days and visualizing the issues. But those are very expensive as compared to Sensu.
