Sensu Asset

The Sensu assets packaged from this repository are built against the Sensu ruby runtime environment. When using these assets as part of a Sensu Go resource (check, mutator or handler), make sure you include the corresponding Sensu ruby runtime asset in the list of assets needed by the resource. The current ruby-runtime assets can be found here in the Bonsai Asset Index.



  • bin/check-load.rb
  • bin/metrics-load.rb



To see the list of full options you can run:

$ ./bin/check-load.rb --help
Usage: ./bin/check-load.rb (options)
    -c, --crit L1,L5,L15             Load CRITICAL threshold, 1/5/15 min average
    -w, --warn L1,L5,L15             Load WARNING threshold, 1/5/15 min average

This check should work on linux systems and many other unix systems. The check takes the loadavg and divide by the number of cores. You can use -w/-c with a comma separated value for 1/5/15 minute thresholds.
