I recently installed Sensu and I’m wondering if it has something similar to the soft states in Nagios. Why do I ask this ? I set up a client with the check-cpu.rb plugin and it started becomming pretty spammy because it’s taking the instantaneous values of CPU usage and triggering an alert if the returned value goes above a certain threshold. The thing is that the client might be running an intensive CPU task during the check run which could stop in the next second. In that case I wouldn’t like an alert to be triggered. Any suggestions on how I can tackle this ?
