Sensu Go PostgreSQL Check and Metrics

Table of Contents

Overview

The sensu-go-postgres is a sensu check that collects PostgreSQL metrics.

Metrics are output in Graphite form.

Supports PostgreSQL version >= 10.

This is the first release, mainly testing integration into my environment for now.

Known issues

  • This is my first time writing in Go and contributing to Sensu, unexpected issues may occur, please let me know
  • Check uses system installed psql command, in future will migrate to go library such as pq
  • Check does not take connection paremeters for host, port, etc., will add when migrated to library
  • Output is not sorted, future release
  • Replication delay metric only works for WAL shipping, streaming, and logical replication. WAL shipping and streaming replication delay is calculated on the slave server, logical on the publisher
  • Logical replication only works with one subscriber

Usage examples

Setup Postgres User

pg_hba.conf

Add this entry to your pg_hba.conf file

# TYPE  DATABASE        USER            ADDRESS                 METHOD
local   postgres        sensu                                   peer

Role

Add this role to your PostgreSQL server

CREATE ROLE sensu NOSUPERUSER INHERIT NOCREATEDB NOCREATEROLE NOREPLICATION LOGIN VALID UNTIL 'infinity';
GRANT CONNECT ON DATABASE postgres TO sensu;
GRANT pg_monitor TO sensu;
