In the process stage, Sensu executes handlers.
In the process stage of Sensu’s observability pipeline, the Sensu backend executes handlers to take action on your observation data. Your handler configuration determines what happens to the events that comes through your pipeline. For example, your handler might route incidents to a specific Slack channel or PagerDuty notification workflow, or send metrics to InfluxDB or Prometheus.
A few different types of handlers are available in Sensu. The most common are pipe handlers, which work similarly to checks and enable Sensu to interact with almost any computer program via standard streams.
