Sensu vs Telegraf: What are the differences?

Developers describe Sensu as "Open source monitoring framework". A monitoring framework that aims to be simple, malleable, and scalable. Essentially, Sensu takes the results of “check” scripts run across many systems, and if certain conditions are met; passes their information to one or more “handlers”. Checks are used, for example, to determine if a service like Apache is up or down. On the other hand, Telegraf is detailed as "The plugin-driven server agent for collecting & reporting metrics". It is an agent for collecting, processing, aggregating, and writing metrics. Design goals are to have a minimal memory footprint with a plugin system so that developers in the community can easily add support for collecting metrics.

Sensu and Telegraf belong to "Monitoring Tools" category of the tech stack.

Sensu and Telegraf are both open source tools. Telegraf with 7.01K GitHub stars and 2.65K forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than Sensu with 2.96K GitHub stars and 389 GitHub forks.
