Sensu Assets: Monitoring Plugins


An attempt at packaging individual C plugins from the excellent Monitoring
Plugins project in the Sensu Go
Asset format. The goal of the project is to provide a simple workflow for
creating a Sensu Go Asset containing the C plugins.


The goal of this project is to provide Sensu Go Assets for CentOS/Rocky/RHEL Linux
(7, 8, 9), Debian Linux (9, 10, 11), Ubuntu Linux (18.04, 20.04, 22.04),
Amazon Linux (2, 2022), and Alpine Linux containing a good subset of the
plugins from the Monitoring Plugins project.

Current Status

Currently, This project will attempt to provide support for the following plugins:

  • check_disk
  • check_dns
  • check_http
  • check_load
  • check_log
  • check_ntp
  • check_ntp_peer
  • check_ntp_time
  • check_ping
  • check_procs
  • check_smtp
  • check_snmp
  • check_ssh
  • check_swap
  • check_tcp
  • check_time
  • check_users


Several plugins, though compiled binaries, require that certain commands be available from the OS.

Examples (not exhaustive):

  • check_snmp requires snmpget
  • check_procs requires ps
  • check_dns requires nslookup
