This cookbook is an attempt at blurring the boundary between TDD and monitoring. It provides an LWRP that creates Sensu client configuration files that are processed by a minitest-chef-handler test for testing, or can be used by sensu in the traditional way.
At the moment it only creates the config files locally, but in future it will use attributes to make the configuration data available to a chef-managed sensu server.
At the moment, this cookbook is completely independant from any sensu cookbooks. This may change in future.
Uses apt cookbook for debian-like systems and yum-epel for rhel family systems, primarily to install nagios plugins.
The simplest usage is just to provide a command
sensu_spec 'check http availability' do command 'check_http -H localhost' end
Something more specific
sensu_spec 'check ruby version' do command 'check_cmd -c "ruby --version" -o "1.9.3"' interval 120 handlers [ 'ruby' ] end
You can then run
sensu_spec from the command line
$ sensu_spec check_http_availability OK check_ruby_version CRITICAL CRITICAL - Output 'ruby 2.0.0p247 (2013-06-27 revision 41674) [x86_64-darwin13.0.0]' did not match '1.9.3' Some tests failed
This command is automatically run by minitest. See
