An Integrated Analytics Solution for All Sensu Users
By Caleb Hailey, Senior Director of Product Development @ Sumo Logic
As part of its recent acquisition of Sensu, Sensu Go is now part of the Sumo Logic Continuous Intelligence Platform, empowering enterprises and developers to quickly get real-time insights from unstructured data for troubleshooting, performance improvement, and security across dynamic multi-cloud infrastructure. For Sensu users who want an integrated analytics engine to extract insights from Sensu’s observability pipeline data, we are launching Sensu Plus – a bundled solution that includes Sensu plus Sumo Logic, with simple node-based pricing. Sensu Plus launches next week with the release of Sensu Go version 6.5.
2021 has been an exciting year for the Sensu Community. The development of Sensu Go 6 and the acquisition of Sensu by Sumo Logic represent significant investments in the long-term success of Sensu as a standalone product. By integrating with the Sumo Logic Continuous Intelligence Platform™, Sensu users now have access to a complete and integrated observability suite that offers an analytical backend in addition to the Sensu Monitoring-as-Code solution.
Starting with the release of Sensu Go version 6.5, coming next week, Sensu will gain a new set of capabilities to make getting key insights from your observability data easier with Sumo Logic. Sensu Go 6.5 introduces two new “streaming” handlers, including a brand new Sumo Logic Metrics Handler integration. With this integration, Sensu provides a turn-key integration for routing metrics to Sumo Logic via the HTTP Logs and Metrics Source.
New Sumo Logic dashboards will provide immediate visibility into Sensu’s real-time inventory data, and overall node health. Sumo Logic’s comprehensive analytics tools make these dashboards interactive, enabling users to drill down from high-level overviews to individual nodes or events.
In support of Sensu users, Sumo Logic also announced increased capabilities in the Sumo Logic Free tier this week. Sensu Plus will be compatible with Sumo Logic Free, making the bundled solution including Sumo Logic’s advanced analytics capabilities completely free for developers and small teams.
In addition to offering more value to all Sensu users with solutions that leverage the expansive Sumo Logic Continuous Intelligence Platform, we have also continued to invest in Sensu’s integrations with other tools and services you’re already using, including time-series databases like InfluxDB and compatible dashboards like Grafana. Sensu 6.5 includes a new TCPStreamHandler for improved observability data throughput to third-party data platforms that support TCP input (e.g. Elasticsearch and Splunk).
Sensu 6.5 with support for Sensu Plus can be downloaded from sensu.io/downloads with instructions on the integration in the Sensu docs (docs.sensu.io).

We look forward to your feedback about the Sensu Plus offering, and can’t wait to see what you build.
