Currently, I believe a restart is required. That’s what we do, and indeed it does require pretty frequent restarts. We’ve mitigated some of this by moving some of the dynamic check logic inside of a custom check, rather than, say, re-writing check configs to ping other servers whenever a server is added/removed. That said, I don’t see any specific issues with restarting, other than resetting the check timers, etc.
Does anyone else have a use-case for a config-reload?

Hi all, having fun playing with Sensu but finding one issue a particular pain during setup: Can Sensu be set to auto update itself when a check file is modified or does it have to be restarted after a modification to any conf.d json file?
