Sensu Event Streamliner

Table of Contents


The Sensu Event Streamliner is a Sensu Mutator that removes certain redundant event information
that may not be needed in certain situations (e.g. sending off to an event indexer).

The event fields removed are:

  • event.Entity.Redact
  • event.Entity.System.Network.Interfaces
  • event.Entity.Subscriptions
  • event.Check.Handlers
  • event.Check.History
  • event.Check.RuntimeAssets
  • event.Check.Subscriptions

My anecdotal testing has shown that this reduces the event payload by between one and two KiB per event.

Usage examples

There are no arguments to this mutator, so the usage is quite simple.
