Filtered, context-rich alerts that improve incident response

Get meaningful alerts when and where you need them so you can reduce alert fatigue and speed up incident response. Sensu gives you full control over your alerts with flexible event filters, check hooks for context-rich notifications, reporting, observation data handling, and auto-remediation.

Extend functionality and integrate with existing workflows with the Sensu Catalog

Use the Sensu Catalog, the online marketplace for monitoring and observability integrations, to find and install integrations directly in your browser.

Sensu’s open architecture integrates with the tools and services you already use, like Ansible, Amazon EC2, InfluxDB, Kubernetes, PagerDuty, Saltstack, and Sumo Logic. The Sensu Catalog also includes standard system checks and metrics collectors.

To start integrating Sensu with your existing workflows, read the Sensu Catalog documentation, check out our featured integrations, search for plugins in Bonsai, the Sensu asset hub, or write your own Sensu plugins in any language.

Automate with agent registration-deregistration and check subscriptions

Sensu agents automatically register and deregister themselves with the Sensu backend so you can collect observation data about ephemeral infrastructure without getting overloaded with alerts.

Instead of setting up traditional one-to-one entity-to-check mapping, use Sensu’s subscriptions to make sure your entities automatically run the appropriate checks for their functionality.

Built-in support for industry-standard tools

Know what’s going on everywhere in your system. Sensu supports industry-standard metric formats like Nagios performance data, Graphite plaintext protocol, InfluxDB line protocol, OpenTSDB data specification, Prometheus Exposition Text Format, and StatsD metrics. Use the Sensu agent to collect metrics alongside check results, then use the Sensu observability pipeline to route observation data to a time-series database like InfluxDB.

Intuitive API with command line and web interfaces

The Sensu API and the sensuctl command-line tool allow you (and your internal customers) to create checks, register entities, manage configuration, and more. The Sensu web UI provides a unified view of your entities, checks, and events, as well as a user-friendly silencing tool.
