looking for sensu benchmark data...


#1

Hi,

I am currently evaluating a bunch of monitoring stacks to refresh the systems we are using in my company.

Sensu is definitely on top of the basket and we are about to put a POC together in one of our smaller DCs.

One aspect for which i have trouble finding information is the performance i should reasonably expect out of sensu-servers instances.

This is mostly so that i could put together some rough capacity estimates based on our current host inventories and checks/metrics throughputs.

Would anyone know where I could find some documented benchmarks based on particular hardware footprints?

cheers,

d.


#2

Pocking one last time,

would anybody be aware of documented throughput/performance for sensu in any given topology?

thanks,

d.

Hi David,

I’m not aware of any documentation. The benchmarking/observation would have to be done in a controlled environment, as there are so many variables that can impact performance. I do intend to add some benchmark data to the Sensu docs project, at least request/result throughput, using a specific configuration on bare metal.

Thanks for letting me know,

What you suggest is exactly what i would have hoped for and would make a great addition to the docs.

Basically something that could used as reasonable a baseline.

In the meantime, I guess i will have to get the info the hard way :slight_smile: (…and happily forward the numbers on if/when i get the bandwidth to run meaningful test beds)

On a somewhat related subject that i also have trouble finding information on, is there any documented/recommended deployment topologies? i.e.

  • service_instances/hosts/racks distribution

  • minimum host base specs for a given average load (clientcheckfrequency)

Thanks again,

d.
