What is Sensu?

A monitoring framework that aims to be simple, malleable, and scalable.

Checks are used, for example, to determine if a service like Apache is up or down.

What is RRDtool?

RRDtool lets you log and analyze the data you gather from all kinds of data-sources (DS). The data analysis part of RRDtool is based on the ability to quickly generate graphical representations of the data values collected over a definable time period.
