Sensu is a monitoring platform that you can build upon, enabling you to focus on what to monitor and measure, rather than how. Sensu monitors application and system services, detecting those in an unhealthy state. Use the instructions below to install the integration and begin sending alerts from Sensu to BigPanda.

Install the Integration

Administrators can install the integration by following the on-screen instructions in BigPanda.

Uninstall the Integration

Deleting an integration requires changes to both the integrated system and BigPanda. You must uninstall the integration on the integrated system and then delete the integration from BigPanda.

🚧

When replacing an existing integration with a new tool or system, we recommend configuring the new integration first to ensure no data is lost.

Stop Sending Data to BigPanda

  1. On the Sensu server, go to the checks configuration directory. By default, the directory is located at: /etc/sensu/conf.d

  2. For each check, delete the BigPanda handler. For example, you would remove the "bigpanda" handler from this check definition.

{
  "checks": {
  "<check_name>": {
  "handlers": ["<handler_1_name>", "<handler_2_name>", ..., "bigpanda"]
  1. Remove the Bigpanda Handler and configuration files, which are located at:
  • /etc/sensu/handlers/bigpanda.rb

  • /etc/sensu/conf.d/handler_bigpanda.json

  1. Restart the Sensu server by running the following command:

sudo /etc/init.d/sensu-server restart

Manually resolve any open alerts sent from the integration to remove the associated incidents from your incident feed. These incidents will not automatically resolve without an ok status from the original sending integration.

Delete the Integration from BigPanda

  1. In BigPanda, navigate to the Integrations tab and select the desired integration from the list.
  2. In the integration details on the right, click Delete Integration. A support message opens, pre-populated with a request to delete the selected integration.
  3. Press Enter to send the request.
  4. The BigPanda support team will remove the integration from the UI.

This procedure does not remove any data from BigPanda or the integrated system. As needed, remove data from each system before deleting the integration.
