What is Dead Man's Snitch?

Dead Man’s Snitch is a cron job monitoring tool that keeps an eye on your periodic processes and notifies you when something doesn’t happen.

How It Works

Dead Man’s Snitch triggers notifications when a snitch does not report in (aka goes “missing”).
  • When snitch is missing (type === "snitch.missing") in Dead Man’s Snitch, an alert is created in PagerTree automatically.
  • When snitch is reporting after being missing (type === "snitch.reporting") in Dead Man’s Snitch, the alert is resolved in PagerTree automatically.
