Sensu Integration

Sensu Integration

Sensu is a tool for monitoring servers, services, application health, and business KPIs.

​What does OpsGenie offer to Sensu users?

Sensu can send notifications of new events. With Sensu Integration, OpsGenie acts as a dispatcher for these alerts, determining the right people to notify based on on-call schedules, notifying them using email, text messages (SMS), phone calls and iPhone & Android push notifications, and escalating alerts until the alert is acknowledged or closed.
