how to configure sensu client

Hi all,

I am new to sensu, and no proper documentation in online.

I have sensu-server, sensu-api, uchiwa, redis , rabbitmq are installed in same machine.

Now,

I need to configure a sensu-client in another machine, and this client should be monitered by my sensu-server

I have searched a lot in web but I can’t find a proper documentation for configuring sensu client on different machines

Can some one help me, about.

**1. what are the server side configurations **

2. what are the client side configuration

Imran,

First off, although this is covered in the existing documentation, it hasn’t always been very obvious, so we have made a lot of changes to improve that. We are also working on improving this even more via a single-page guide dedicated to “demystifying” the process of adding remote clients. It’s really easy once you understand that there are basically two concerns: a) client configuration, and b) communicating with the transport. There are no server-side configurations required to add a remote client.

Here’s a rough set of steps:

  1. Install the client on the remote system (obviously). See here for a list of supported platforms: https://sensuapp.org/docs/latest/platforms#sensu-client (e.g. install on Ubuntu: https://sensuapp.org/docs/latest/sensu-on-ubuntu-debian#sensu-core)
  2. Add a client definition; e.g.: https://sensuapp.org/docs/latest/sensu-on-ubuntu-debian#configure-sensu and https://sensuapp.org/docs/latest/sensu-on-ubuntu-debian#example-client-configuration)
  3. Tell the client which transport to use; e.g.: https://sensuapp.org/docs/latest/sensu-on-ubuntu-debian#example-transport-configuration
  4. Tell the client how to connect to the transport; e.g.: https://sensuapp.org/docs/latest/rabbitmq#sensu-rabbitmq-configuration
  5. Start (or restart) the client
