Dashboard Overview

The Sensu backend includes the Sensu dashboard: a unified view of your events, entities, and checks with user-friendly tools to reduce alert fatigue.

Accessing the Dashboard

After starting the Sensu backend, you can access the dashboard in your browser by visiting http://localhost:3000. You may need to replace localhost with the hostname or IP address where the Sensu backend is running.

Signing In

Sign in to the dashboard with your sensuctl username and password. If you haven’t configured sensuctl, you can sign in as the default read-only user (username: sensu, password: sensu).


Use the preferences menu to change the theme or switch to the dark theme.
