Configuration Management

We highly recommend using configuration management tools to deploy Sensu in production and at scale.

  • Pin versions of Sensu-related software to ensure repeatable Sensu deployments.
  • Ensure consistent configuration between Sensu backends.

The following configuration management tools have well-defined Sensu modules to help you get started.


The Puppet Sensu module can be found on the GitHub. Sensu has partnered with Tailored Automation to enhance the Puppet module with new features and bug fixes.


The Chef cookbook for Sensu can be found on the GitHub. Interested in more information on Sensu + Chef? Get some helpful resources here.


The Ansible role to deploy and manage Sensu Go can be found on GitHub.
