How did you install the other plugins? Did you use their asset versions on bonsai.sensu.io, or did you install them as gems? I’d strongly advise for using the asset versions, if you’ve not done that.
As for viewing the check results, just installing a plugin doesn’t give you results. You’ll have to define a check and a handler on the check. Note that if you’ve already defined an
influxdb handler, there’s no need to redefine that–you can add that to your check definition.
Since you’ve already done the sandbox lesson, you’re basically repeating what you’ve already done with the http plugin in terms of defining your checks. For example with the network checks plugin:
command: metrics-ping.rb -h google.com
^ This check makes use of the assets listed here:
You can see above, I haven’t redefined the influxdb handler, but I have it listed as a metric handler. You’ll also note that it has the metric output format of
graphite_plaintext–this is because ALL Ruby Sensu Community plugins have standardized on this format. But applying that check to your Sensu installation should get you some ping metrics in Influx, which you can then visualize with Grafana.
If you have questions about what’s available, you can always find the executables in the
bin directory on the project itself.
