Deepen your Sensu knowledge with email courses on checks & external services

We wanted to share two new opportunities to further your Sensu knowledge: our latest email courses on checks and external services!

Sign up for our email course on checks to learn about:

  • Handler set definitions, which allow you to use a single named handler set to refer to groups of handlers
  • Check tokens, which are check definition placeholders that the Sensu agent will replace with the corresponding entity definition attribute values
  • Check hooks, commands run by the Sensu agent in response to the result of check command execution
  • Proxy checks, which let you monitor external resources on systems where a Sensu agent can’t be installed
  • Scheduling checks to go out at set times
  • Using API keys to submit an event

Sign up for our email course on external services to learn about:

  • Handler annotations, which let you tune handlers on a per-entity or per-check basis
  • TCP and UDP handlers, which enable Sensu to forward event data to arbitrary TCP or UDP sockets for external services to consume
  • Secrets management, which eliminates the need to expose secrets in your Sensu configuration
  • Mutators, which allow you to change the JSON representation of a Sensu event into a data format that your external service expects

We do assume a certain baseline knowledge (i.e., you’ve created a check and/or a Slack alert before). If you’re totally new to Sensu Go, we recommend checking out our Learn Sensu Go email course.

We hope these resources are helpful as you make your way on your Sensu Go journey! As always, feedback is most welcome (and appreciated); feel free to hit reply on any of the emails — or leave a comment on this post — to let us know what you think.
