Here’s the ideal scenario
single agent running inside the LAN collects API data from several local machines (which we can not install anything on, but do not require auth for http API access either. only address, port and endpoint)
this agent ships data to sensu core. more importantly are the alerts (telegram, slack or email ok) when the numbers returned by the API for any of the machines drops/rises from specified thresholds.
eventually we would integrate grafana to visualize this, but foremost we are looking to monitor the health of these other machines via the agent and send it to a web interface.
A) is this something you’d recommend using sensu for?
B) is the data flow
API endpoints>proxy clients>plugin>client>core (remember I cannot install anything on the machines i want to monitor)
and all the data stays inside the machine where core is?
