Separating different kind of alarms in uchiwa ?


#1

Hi,

I have been using sensu for a while now and we have different types of alarms in the system (tenant-specific which are application and system related for the OPs team). We loved the sense-architecture and so used the same for the rest of the alarms in our system.

Now the problem that i’m trying to solve is, i want to be able to show these alarms separately in uchiwa. How can i achieve this ?

Any leads on this would be really helpful.

Thanks in advance!

Hi Akshay,

The Sensu Enterprise dashboard offers a role-based access controls (RBAC) feature, which would allow you to have a multi-tenant dashboard: https://sensuapp.org/#compare.

Thanks for the reply Simon. I think what I want to know is if I can seperate alarms from system Vs application ( let’s for the sake of discussion forget multi-tenancy )

Is there a good way we can achieve this in the existing UI ?

Thanks,

Akshay

This is something you can only do with the enterprise version of the dashboard.

Uchiwa offers you the possibly to manually apply filters based on a subscription (you could have specific subscriptions for system and application checks).

True. But with that as well, on the main events page it will show up all the current events (system and application)

I want to be able to show only the system alarms and not any of the application alarms (application alarms in this case is tenant-alarms for the sake of discussion) to the operations team.

I probably know what you’re saying but not sure if i’m able to explain my requirements. Hope the above is a little better explanation for the problem.

There’s unfortunately no way to do something like this with the open source version of Uchiwa however the enterprise version of the dashboard, using RBAC, could restrict the data available to only specific datacenters or subscriptions. This means you could have one or more subscriptions dedicated to your system alarms and have a role with restricted access to these subscriptions so you only see the relevant events.
