Sensu InfluxDB Handler

TravisCI: TravisCI Build Status

The Sensu InfluxDB Handler is a Sensu Event Handler that sends metrics to
the time series database InfluxDB. Sensu can collect metrics using
check output metric extraction or the StatsD listener. Those collected metrics
pass through the event pipeline, allowing Sensu to deliver the metrics to the
configured metric event handlers. This InfluxDB handler will allow you to
store, instrument, and visualize the metric data from Sensu.

Check out The Sensu Blog or Sensu Docs for a step by step guide!


Download the latest version of the sensu-influxdb-handler from releases,
or create an executable script from this source.

From the local path of the sensu-influxdb-handler repository:

go build -o /usr/local/bin/sensu-influxdb-handler main.go


Example Sensu Go handler definition:

    "api_version": "core/v2",
    "type": "Handler",
    "metadata": {
        "namespace": "default",
        "name": "influxdb"
    "spec": {
        "type": "pipe",
        "command": "sensu-influxdb-handler -a 'http://influxdb.default.svc.cluster.local:8086' -d sensu -u sensu -p password",
        "timeout": 10,
        "filters": [

Example Sensu Go check definition:

    "api_version": "core/v2",
    "type": "CheckConfig",
    "metadata": {
        "namespace": "default",
        "name": "dummy-app-prometheus"
    "spec": {
        "command": "sensu-prometheus-collector -exporter-url http://localhost:8080/metrics",
        "publish": true,
        "interval": 10,
        "output_metric_format": "influxdb_line",
        "output_metric_handlers": [

That's right, you can collect different types of metrics (ex. Influx,
Graphite, OpenTSDB, Nagios, etc.), Sensu will extract and transform
them, and this handler will populate them into your InfluxDB.
