@Scout how to activate the sensor daemon


02/27/2024, 1:50 PM
To activate the sensor daemon, you should follow the instructions provided in the Dagster daemon documentation. The Dagster daemon is responsible for running each sensor evaluation function on a tight loop. If you are using sensors, you need to ensure that the Dagster daemon is running to execute your sensors properly. Here are the general steps you would typically follow to activate the sensor daemon: 1. Set up the Dagster daemon process according to the deployment environment you are using (e.g., local, Docker, Kubernetes). 2. Ensure that your Dagster instance is configured to run the daemon. This might involve setting the appropriate configuration in your
file. 3. Start the Dagster daemon process. This process will continuously run in the background and invoke sensor checks at the specified intervals. Please refer to the specific deployment instructions for the Dagster daemon in the documentation for detailed steps tailored to your environment. If you encounter any issues or need further assistance, feel free to ask for additional help or clarification.
