Sensu: Monitoring that doesn't suck.

Tuesday, March 14, 2017

Monitoring and managing distributed systems is a difficult task, made even more difficult through the use of micro services and responsive self healing infrastructure. The need for highly flexible and configurable alerting/tracking requires a good understanding complex system architectures.

During this presentation we will discuss the use of Sensu for both infrastructure and applications, even with applications that are in containers running on modern infrastructure like Kubernetes. Also, we will explore how you can keep ahead of system failures and system downtimes to give users a more reliable service.
