License-activated features in Sensu Go

  • Manage resources from your browser: Create, edit, and delete checks, handlers, mutators, and filters using the Sensu web UI.
  • Authentication providers: Scale Sensu role-based access control with LDAP and Active Directory integrations.
  • Scalable resource filtering: Designed for large installations, label and field selectors let you filter Sensu API responses, sensuctl outputs, and Sensu web UI views using custom labels and a wider range of resource attributes.
  • Event logging: Log event data to a file that you can use as an input source for your favorite data lake solution. Using the event logging functionality provides better performance and reliability than using event handlers.
