Sensu Handler


#1

Hello,

Whats happens when a sensu handler fails?

There’s somekind of retry in Sensu?


#2

Sensu does not retry failing handlers, but it does log the fact that
they failed and their output

Of course, if the check is still failing and sensu is scheduling the
check, you will get another try after the interval.

But, this is sometimes not enough, especially on a "resolve" event,
where you only get 1 shot to resolve it.
At Yelp we do the retries *in* the handler, but only on those that
really need it and those that are idempotent, like pagerduty:
