This role deploys a full Sensu stack, a modern, open source monitoring framework.


  • Deploy a full Sensu stack, including RabbitMQ, redis, and the Uchiwa dashboard
  • Full support for Sensu Enterprise
  • Tight integration with the Ansible inventory - deployment of monitoring checks based on inventory grouping
  • Fine grained control over dynamic client configurations
  • Remote plugin deployment
  • Automatic generation and dynamic deployment of SSL certs for secure communication between your clients and servers
  • Highly configurable

Batteries included, but not imposed

Along with deploying the Sensu Server, API and clients, this role can deploy a full stack: RabbitMQ, redis, and the Uchiwa dashboard. However, if you want to rely on other roles/management methods to deploy/manage these services, it's nice and easy to integrate this role.
