[Sensu Go Workshop] Lesson 2: Set up the Workshop Environment

Sep 20, 2022

💻 The Sensu Go Workshop is an instructor-led training series designed to empower developers, SREs, and DevOps teams begin their monitoring as code journeys.

Taking the Workshop will help you to:

✅ Take control of your monitoring and observability data with the Sensu Go observability pipeline
✅ Schedule monitoring jobs across elastic multi-cloud infrastrucutre to execute custom scripts, including Nagios-style plugins
✅ Collect custom application metrics and integrate observability data with external data platforms for unified business intelligence
✅ Send alerts via Slack, Microsoft Teams, Pagerduty, ServiceNow, and more
✅ Fine tune observability data processing workflows and eliminate alert fatigue using Sensu Go filters
✅ Automate multi-cloud endpoint management – discovering new VMs, public cloud compute instances, containers, and more in real-time
✅ Automate remediation (self-healing) with Sensu Go


In Lesson 2️⃣, we will set up a local Sensu development environment for use during the workshop.

This lesson is intended for operators of Sensu or anyone who would like to explore Sensu from a technical perspective.
