Although Sensu wouldn’t become a publicly available open-source project until November 2011, the Sensu journey officially began five years ago this week. Five years ago I committed an emtpy README.md file (commit #1) to an otherwise empty repository called “Sensu” where I would then describe my #monitoringlove goals (commit #2), and the rest is history. We started this humble project at Sonian to replace an aging Nagios installation that couldn’t keep up with the rapidly evolving demands of a dynamic public-cloud infrastructure. Sonian was not (and is not) the only company facing that challenge, which has resulted in Sensu’s continued growth, and establishment as one of the most trusted monitoring platforms in the world today.

If you are like many Sensu users, you’ve come to rely on event handlers from the Sensu Plugins project for sending notifications to on-call personnel. These handler plugins automatically apply filtering to reduce alert fatigue and improve the overall signal-to-noise ratio of notifications coming from Sensu. Historically this filtering logic has been implemented in the sensu-plugin framework. This logic will soon be deprecated in the sensu-plugin library and move into the larger Sensu Core platform as first-class features. Read on to learn more about this important change.
