Custom agent for unsupported OS systems

I am interested in possibly making simple custom agent for unsupported OS systems like AIX, Solaris and HP-UX.

Besides setting up proxy checks, how would I go about doing this?

For example, if I was to run the checks in a cron job, how should I send the data to the sensu-backend?

Are there examples of this?

I see that statsd is included with the sensu agent, but in this case a sensu agent would not be installed.

Can a lone statsd help with this? Is there another open source tool that might help with this?

Our unsupported OS environment:
222 Solaris servers
279 AIX servers
28 HP-UX.

Ironically i just posted a topic about this just a few minutes before you posted…
