Overview

This plugin provides native instrumentation for monitoring Chef, including service health checks (via chef-server-ctl) and chef node status, and a Sensu handler for removing stale Sensu clients.

Files

  • bin/check-chef-node.rb
  • bin/check-chef-nodes.rb
  • bin/check-chef-server.rb
  • bin/handler-chef-node.rb

check-chef-node Checks if a node exists.

check-chef-nodes Reports nodes from your cluster that were last seen before the specified number of seconds.

check-chef-server Uses Chef Server's chef-server-ctl to check whether any component of the Chef Server is not running. You must run this plugin with elevated privileges (sudo) or it will fail with unknown state.

handler-chef-node Removes a Sensu client if its Chef node data no longer exists.

Additional notes

Sensu Go Ruby Runtime Assets

The Sensu assets packaged from this repository are built against the Sensu Ruby runtime environment. When using these assets as part of a Sensu Go resource (check, mutator, or handler), make sure to include the corresponding Sensu Ruby Runtime Asset in the list of assets needed by the resource.

Use this plugin with Sensu Go

To use handler-chef-node.rb with Sensu Go, you will need to use the event mapping command line option. See handler-chef-node.rb --help for details. Read the sensu-plugin README for more information about the event mapping functionality.
