About the Book

Sensu Monitoring and Metrics introduces Sensu and explains the concepts behind this increasingly popular monitoring system. Sensu's architecture and concepts are discussed in plain language with chapters dedicated to Checks, Handlers and Metrics. Two appendices cover key references for checks and handlers, and an additional appendix notes common errors, their causes, and how to solve them.
