Round robin check: reporting agent?

When using a round robin proxy check, is it possible to see which agent reported the latest state?

Context: I’m getting lots of flapping proxy checks and it seems like one agent’s (executing proxy checks) connection is to blame, but I’m not sure which agent that is.

Hey,

You can construct a check hook command that fires to report back something unique from the running agent.

See attached for an example of a simple proxy check using a hook to call the linux hostname command and the resulting event. The hook output returns ‘carbon’ which is the hostname of the laptop being used as an agent.

proxy_check_event_with_hook.yaml (2.9 KB)

Don’t forget hooks can also make use of runtime assets…so if the command you want to run as a hook to provide context isn’t on the agent, its possible to pull it in using an asset just like the check.

I already put in a feature request for this: https://github.com/sensu/sensu-go/issues/3761

Glad to know it’s not just me who wants it.

Worth you expressing an interest in the issue too.
