roundrobin checks & duplicate notifications


#1

Hi List,

I’m using roundrobin subscribers to distribute public type checks amongst my sensu clients & this is working great.

The only issue I’m having is that each check appears to be unique from an event POV, for instance I will get events generated & handled for every subscriber rather than the check being a singleton.

I can’t quite figure out from the documentation how to essentially group the checks such that regardless of where they are executing there’s only a single event then subsequent handle.

Do I need to make a custom handler which is looking for duplicates or is this what aggregates are for?

Any clues would help please.

Regards, Lee

This is achieved by setting a consistent "source" for the alerts:

Can you explain how you configured the round robin checks?
