I recently led a webinar for the Sensu community on how to scale your monitoring by setting up a three-node cluster in Sensu Go using Sensu’s embedded etcd. Clustering improves Sensu’s availability, allows for node failure, and distributes network load. In this post, I’ll recap the webinar and provide demos on how to set up, back up, and restore your etcd cluster, including best practices for success.

We recently introduced the sensu-plugins-sdk and the new template plugin projects. In this post — based on our recent webinar — I’m going to dive deeper into those community resources and illustrate how to publish an asset using the Sensu Go SDK. I’ll also cover how to package compiled binary plugins (including dynamically linked libraries) as assets.

When you’re clear on what you want to do and why you want to do it, the questions of “When?” and “How?” become your focus. What follows centers on the question of how to approach making Kubernetes the platform on which your workloads thrive.
