Frequently Asked Questions

What is a node? What is a target? What is a service instance?

A node is a physical or virtual systems that is configured or managed with Chef Infra.

A target in compliance is an object to be scanned. Compute instances that are either long-lived or ephemeral in nature (e.g. OS images, databases, containers) can be targets, as well as the ever-growing number of cloud objects (e.g. storage buckets, security groups, firewall rules). Basically, if an endpoint can be logged into and/or have inquiries placed against it, it can be a target for Chef InSpec.

A service instance is a single instance of an application service that is packaged, managed, and deployed by Chef Habitat.
