Error while sensu-installing sensu-plugins-mysql



Well this step below that I took is not documented anywhere. But based on your documentation which explains how to sensu-install disk check - i applied same anology to install mysql checks on my sensu -client

here is the command given on my debian 8 system

sensu-install -p mysql

  • I got the following error

*** extconf.rb failed ***

Could not create Makefile due to some reason, probably lack of necessary

libraries and/or headers. Check the mkmf.log file for more details. You may

need configuration options.

What could have gone wrong here?


Attaching the mkmf.log and gem_mak.out files

gem_make.out (1.69 KB)

mkmf.log (56.7 KB)


When installing gems that have C extensions (like mysql) you need the
mysql development packages installed.

On ubuntu this is usually called libmysqlclient-dev, but on other
linux distros it may be called something different.
