I am looking into various monitoring products, and since I may need to install them again, that means automation. With some help from Sarah Zelechoski and Larry Smith, I have the first pass done on an Ansible role for Sensu. There may be better ones out there, or you might just want to follow the directions manually but so far this role gets the install working up through the base install with examples. This is just as much about me getting better with Ansible, don’t like how I did something? PRs welcome as that is how I will learn from those with more experience.
The role is still a work in progress, so very much as some clean up to do, but should get you going quickly on Ubuntu 14.04. Here is a screenshot of the sensu server log:
