As a small startup team of developers, release engineering and quality assurance was inherently problematic. To optimize these processes, Sensu implemented a full automated test infrastructure for staging and end-to-end testing. To increase observability on the overall ecosystem, Nikki Attea of Sensu, started to research the intersection of monitoring and testing in a CI/CD pipeline, and sought to implement existing tooling to further optimize the workflow. The technology stack they put together for this purpose uses Rspec, Sensu, InfluxDB and Grafana.
