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.
  • Scale Sensu horizontally with additional Sensu, RabbitMQ, and Redis servers.
  • Ensure consistent configuration between Sensu Servers.

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


The Puppet Sensu module can be found on the Puppet Forge. Sensu has partnered with Tailored Automation to enhance the Puppet module with new features, bug fixes, and ensure Sensu 2.0 has a supported Puppet module.


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